Polish troops are holding a Taliban commander known as "Puma" who the radical Islamist militia has demanded released in exchange for 19 South Korean hostages, a report said Thursday.

Defence Minister Aleksander Szczyglo was cited by the PAP news agency as saying Polish troops serving with NATO-led forces had captured the commander on August 16 in eastern Afghanistan.

He said Puma was the fourth most-wanted militant in Afghanistan and was one of several captured fighters the Taliban were seeking to exchange for their South Korean hostages, seized on July 19.

"It's therefore someone very important," Szczyglo was quoted as saying by the news agency.

Good job troops - now it's clear that Poles went there to chew bubble gum and kick ass.
