Kabul: Afghanistan`s intelligence agency says it has prevented a large terrorist attack in the capital, arresting a Pakistani national driving a truck packed with explosives in Kabul.

The agency says in a statement that the man was arrested today on a major road in the east of the city. It says the man was going to use the truck bomb in a suicide attack.

The agency does not say what the suspected target was. It says it will release more details as they became available.
The arrest comes a day after a suicide attack on the same road killed seven people. In that attack one militant detonated his car bomb outside a compound where foreigners live, while two other attackers fought their way inside before being killed.
