American officials believe Mullah Sangeen Zadran organized attacks on U.S. troops and helped capture Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in 2009. Bergdahl is the only American soldier in captivity.

The U.S. has discussed swapping Bergdahl for Taliban prisoners, but those talks have stalled.

Mullah Sangeen Zadran is believed to be one of at least four alleged militants killed in Friday’s attack.
