Kabul CNN  — 

A coalition service member died Wednesday after being stabbed in the neck – allegedly by a Taliban member – near the international airport in Afghanistan’s capital, a spokesman for Kabul’s police chief said.

The name and nationality of the service member, serving the NATO-led International Security Assistance Forces, weren’t immediately released.

The victim was taken to a hospital, where he died, Kabul police spokesman Hashmat Stanikzai said.

A suspect – identified as a low-level Taliban commander Abdul Fatah Jahadwal – was arrested hours later and confessed to stabbing the man, Stanikzai said.
