Islamabad: Pakistani police on Monday claimed they have foiled a major terror plot by arresting three suspects, including a woman, in the federal capital and seized 130 kg of explosives from them.

The driver of the vehicle and two passengers, including a woman identified as Amtari Bibi, were arrested.

The suspects were bound for Raja Bazar in the nearby garrison city of Rawalpindi, Superintendent of Police Jameel Hashmi told the media.
