KANDAHAR, Afghanistan, Jan. 2 (UPI) -- Coalition forces led by U.S. troops arrested two suspected terrorists in Kandahar, Afghanistan, the military said Wednesday.

Both men are accused of making improvised explosive devices and shuttling arms and ammunition to Taliban soldiers fighting in the country.

A non-military contractor was also killed in what was described as a "non-battle related injury." The contractor's identity was not released, officials said.
