Five suicide bombers arrested in Kabul: Afghan police
Kabul: Afghan police arrested five would-be suicide bombers on Thursday in Kabul — the largest suicide bomb team ever apprehended in the capital, officials said.
"If this team had made it through it would have been a disaster as we`ve seen in past instances," said Abdul Ghafar, deputy commander of the Afghan National Police crisis unit.
He said police, acting on intelligence, stopped the suicide bombers who were riding in a sports utility vehicle in the southeast part of the city. He said the bomb team had been sent by the al Qaeda-linked Haqqani network.
"Today`s operation marks a big success," Ghafar said. "Our capacities are improving day by day and also our ability to uncover such plots is improving day by day."
