New York: The Afghan police has said that they have spotted a bird with a bomb vest, surveillance camera and a GPS tracker on a highway and believe that the Taliban is behind the suicide mission, a report said.

The police said that the do-it-yourself drone appears to be a mysterious white and brown bird no bigger than an eagle, reported New York Post. 

It was spotted in the conflict-torn region of northern Frayab province on Saturday after the police noticed an antenna attached to its body.

The cops shot the bird out of suspicion after which it exploded and "suspicious metal stuff" was sent flying in every direction, the police said.

Authorities believed that the bird was deployed on a surveillance mission by the Taliban and was not native to the region.
