SHARAN (PANinfo-icon): A would-be car suicide attacker was shot dead before he could reach his target in the Khairkot district of southern Paktika province on Monday, an official said.

The incident took place at 11am when a car suicide bomber tried to target the National Directorate of Security (NDSinfo-icon) office in the district, the governor’s spokesman, Mukhlis Afghan, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Security forces identified the attacker, he said, adding NDS operatives shot him to death before he reached the target. Two NDS agents were slightly injured in the incident and taken to hospital for treatment.
