The individuals were arrested in separate operations by law-enforcement personnel, the National Directorate of Security (NDSinfo-icon) said. However, the agency gave no dates of the arrests.

In a statement, the agency said: “Three Taloqan residents, loyal to Talibaninfo-icon commander Maulviinfo-icon Aminullah Tayeb, were held with an explosives-rigged motorbike.”
