Two militants detained with suicide vests in Afghanistan
Afghanistan's National Directorate for Security (NDS) has captured two militants along with four suicide vests, foiling possible terror attacks in Kabul.
"Personnel of NDS arrested 2 members of Haqqani terrorist network with four suicide vests, six pieces of AK-47 and nine magnetic bombs and other explosives in Kabul province yesterday," Xinhua reported citing an NDS statement issued Tuesday.
The Haqqani network, according to the statement, had sent the would-be suicide bombers along with suicide vests from Pakistan's tribal area of North Waziristan to Khost province and then to Kabul to conduct suicide attacks and undermine electioneering.
The two-month election campaign for Afghanistan's upcoming presidential election began Feb 2 amid tight security as Taliban militants have vowed to disrupt the election process.
