Peshawar: Pakistani security forces
today arrested 25 suspected terrorists, including Afghan
nationals, and seized 20 vehicles with explosive materials and
suicide jackets during a search operation in the restive
Khyber tribal region.

Troops combed the Shalobar area of Khyber Agency and
busted several terrorist hideouts.

A spokesman for the Frontier Scouts said the arrests
and seizure of explosive materials had averted a major
terrorist attack on Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa capital Peshawar, which
has been on high alert for the past few days.
