ISAF service member killed

Kabul (CNN) -- A coalition service member died after being stabbed in the neck -- allegedly by a Taliban member -- near the international airport in Afghanistan's capital Wednesday morning, 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.

After the attack near Kabul's international airport, 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.
