NDS claims nabbing would-be suicide bombers in Nangarhar
A statement from the intelligence network said the bombers planned attacks on sensitive installations on the outskirts of Jalalabad. Arrested in the border town of Torkham, the boys are under investigation.
The detainees, who reportedly confessed to their crime, were quoted as saying that Qari Bilal, a seminary teacher, had trained them on suicide bombing. The arrests reinforce Afghanistan’s claim that terrorist networks enjoy support and sanctuaries in Pakistan.
