    Dadullah-linked suicide attackers nabbed

    KABUL (PAN): Three suicide attackers, believed to be members of the Mullah Dadullah Front -- an insurgent group that claims responsibility for killing top peace negotiator Arsalan Rahmani -- were detained in Kabul, the spy service said on Saturday.

    A National Directorate of Security (NDS) statement said three suicide vests were recovered from the detainees during a search operation by intelligence agents in the heavily-fortified capital.

    The detainees had links with the Mullah Dadullah Front, accused of waging a psychological war in the country, the statement said. One AK-47 rifle and some explosives were also recovered from them, added the statement.
