KHOST CITY (Pajhwok): A female suicide bomber was shot dead by police before she could detonate her explosives in southeastern Khost province, the Ministry of Interior said on Thursday.

The ministry said in a statement the incident took place in the Musakhel district a day earlier. It claimed police had foiled an attack by killing the woman.

Khost police spokesman Habibullah told Pajhwok Afghan News the suicide bomber on foot was positively identified and gunned downed before she could reach the target.

Only the would-be bomber was killed and no one else got hurt in the incident, he said.

However, the district chief, Mirwais, disputed the Interior Ministry’s account that the incident occurred a day earlier, saying it took place on Thursday morning.

He told Pajhwok the target of the female bomber was a training camp of security forces in the area. She was gunned down before reaching the camp, he said.
