KANDAHAR CITY (PANinfo-icon): A vehicle rigged with 360 kilograms of explosives was seized in the Spin Boldak border town of southern Kandahar province, an official said on Thursday.

The vehicle with a Pakistani number plate was intercepted in Wesh area of the district Wednesday evening, the governor's spokesman, Zalmay Ayubi, told Pajhwok Afghan News.
