Pakistani security forces wounded and captured a top Taliban commander, Mullah Mansour Dadullah, in an operation on Monday near the border with Afghanistan, intelligence officials said.

QUETTA, Pakistan - Pakistani security forces wounded
and captured a top Taliban commander, Mullah
Mansour Dadullah, in an operation on Monday near the border
with Afghanistan, intelligence officials said.
 

 Mullah Mansour had taken over as commander of Taliban
forces in the southern Afghan province of Helmand in May from
his brother, Mullah Dadullah, who was killed in a raid by
British forces.
 

"We have reports that Mansour Dadullah has been arrested by
the security officials during an operation," said an
intelligence official who declined to be identified.
 

Four of Dadullah's comrades were also arrested when
security forces, acting on a tip-off, raided a house in Gawal
Ismailzai village, in the southwestern province of Baluchistan,
the official said.
 

Interior Ministry spokesmen were not immediately available
for comment.
