KANDAHAR CITY (PANinfo-icon): A would-be suicide bomber was among seven insurgents detained in a string of intelligence operations in southern Kandahar province over the past week, the governor said on Sunday.

The detainees included three commanders who led their groups, each containing 10 members, in Shah Walikot and Takhta Pul districts against local and foreign troops, Tooryalai Weesa told a press conference in Kandahar City, the provincial capital.
