4-member terror group busted, says spy service
Intelligence agents captured the four in the Shor Bazaar area of the capital, a spokesman for the National Directorate of Security (NDS) told a press conference.
Lotfullah Mashal said the detainees planned a suicide assault on the second police district headquarters on Independence, marked on last Friday.
The detainees were identified as Obaidullah, alias Abdul Waris, Muhammad Sher, Roz Muhammad and Ghulam Muhammad.
Living for the past two months in Kabul, the men might have also played a role in the attack on British Council, the NDS spokesman believed.
Eight people, including two Nepalese Gurkhas, were killed and 22 others injured in the Taliban attack on the British Council in the heart of the capital.
