KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): Afghan intelligence agents have arrested the mastermind behind suicide attacks on the funeral ceremony of President Hamid Karzai's half-brother and the Kandahar mayor, an official said on Wednesday.

The mastermind of the attacks on the funeral ceremony of Kandahar Provincial Council Ahmad Wali Karzai and Mayor Syed Mohammad was arrested during a special operation of intelligence operatives. 

National Directorate of Security spokesman Lotfullah Mashal told reporters the man, a resident of Panjwai district, was arrested in the second police district of Kandahar City. However, he did not give the date of the arrest.

On July 14, a suicide bomber killed at least four people at one of Kandahar's largest mosques during the funeral of Wali Karzai, who was assassinated by his security guard.

Ghulam Haidar Hamidi, the Kandahar mayor, was killed during a meeting in the provincial capital, where the bomber detonated his explosives hidden in his turban.
