Kabul police parade 4 detained alleged bombers

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Four would-be suicide bombers who were planning to carry out attacks in the central capital Kabul have been detained, police said on Sunday.

Lt. Gen. Abdul Rahman Rahimi, the 101 Asmai Police Zone Commander, told reporters here the alleged suicide attackers were captured six days ago in Kabul city. 

He identified the detainees as members of Talibaninfo-icon’s splinter Mullahinfo-icon Dadullah group.

He said the detainees wanted to carry out suicide attacks in Kabul city but they were captured before doing so.

One of the would-be bombers, Azizullah, had a tattoo on his arm to be identified by other attackers and a stamp on his back as ‘entry stamp to the Heaven,’ Rahimi said.

The four detained persons were paraded before journalists during a press conference addressed by Rahimi.

There was a deep cut on one of Azizullah’s arms and there were black and blue marks on his second arm and the stamp on his back seemed burned skin.

Azizullah confirmed Rahimi’s account and said he was regretful. “I was injected toxins as well.”

Lt. Gen. Rahimi said the four would-be attackers had previously killed a man and wounded another man in Charasiab district of Kabul. The wounded man was rescued by security forces.
