KABULinfo-icon(PANinfo-icon):Afghan and coalition security forces have arrested the Talibaninfo-icon facilitator responsible for an Aug. 7 insider attack in Paktiya province that killed one U.S. service member and wounded three, the International Security Assistance Force said Thursday.

During the operation, Afghan troops also seized what is believed to be the attacker's Afghan National Army identification card.

Another suspected insurgent was also arrested.
