New leaders captured in Afghanistan

MARJAH, Afghanistan – U.S. and Afghan forces have taken control of the main roads, bridges and government centers of the Taliban haven of Marjah, the top Marine commander in southern Afghanistan said Thursday, though he added that pockets of insurgents remain.

“I’d say we control the spine” of the town, Brig. Gen. Larry Nicholson told The Associated Press as he inspected the Marines’ front line in the north of the town. “We’re where we want to be.”
