WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House is confirming for the first time the capture of the Afghan Taliban's leader in Pakistan.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters Wednesday that Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, who was arrested earlier this month in a joint operation by CIA and Pakistani security forces, "is a big success for our mutual efforts in the region."

He praised Pakistan for the capture, saying it is a sign of increased cooperation with the U.S. in the terror fight. Gibbs confirmed Baradar is being interrogated but wouldn't divulge any of the results.
