KANDAHAR CITY (PANinfo-icon): An explosives-packed tractor was confiscated after its driver was shot dead by security forces in southern Kandahar province, an official said.

Governor spokesman Javid Faisal told Pajhwok Afghan News the bomb-rigged tractor was seized in Daman district on Saturday night based on intelligence information.

He said the seizure had prevented a huge suicide attack. The tractor's driver, believed to be a suicide attacker, was shot dead after he ignored signals from security men to stop, Faisal said, but did not identify the slain driver.
