KUNDUZ CITY (PAN): Two militants were detained and an intelligence operative wounded in a bomb blast in the northern province of Kunduz on Wednesday, an official said.

The blast took place in Sardara area on the outskirts of the provincial capital at approximately 2pm, Kunduz intelligence chief, Col. Ghulam Mohammad Farhad, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

The explosion destroyed the vehicle the intelligence operative was travelling in, he said, blaming the Taliban for planting the remote-controlled bomb. The fighters are yet to comment on the claim.

Provincial police chief, Maj. Gen. Samiullah Qatra, said two insurgents were arrested in the Lala Maidan area of Aliabad district. The insurgents put up a brief resistance, he added.

One rocket-propelled grenade with seven shells, three roadside bombs and two Kalashnikovs were recovered from the fighters, the police chief concluded.
