Afghanistan

(CNN) -- U.S.-led coalition forces in Afghanistan killed five suspected militants and detained nine others Thursday in an attack on an "al Qaeda facilitator" believed to be planning an attack against coalition forces, a coalition military spokesman told CNN Saturday.

The operation happened near Jalalabad in eastern Afghanistan, according to Maj. Mark McCann.

He said he had no information about the target of the operation or whether the "facilitator" was among those killed or detained.

McCann said they had "reasonable and credible information" the al Qaeda operative was planning an attack against coalition forces.
