KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): The Presidential Palace on Saturday denied that Mohibullah Ahmadi, who was accused of plotting President Hamid Karzai's assassination, was Karzai’s bodyguard.

On Wednesday, the National Directorate of Security (NDSinfo-icon) officials said four university students, a professor and a presidential guard were arrested on charges of plotting Karzai's assassination.
