Looming terror bid foiled in Laghman: NDS

Apr 19, 2015 - 12:09

MEHTARLAM (Pajhwok): Security officials detained a group of militants in eastern Laghman province, thwarting a looming terror bid, the National Directorate of Security (NDSinfo-icon) said on Sunday.

In a statement, the NDS said that Afghan National Army (ANA), Afghan National Police (ANP) and the spy service in a joint operation detained the group of terrorists.

The armed men are associated with Qari Ghazi group and a notorious commander Fazal Haq and his associates were planning to carry out a big sabotage act in Mehtarlam, the provincial capital, the statement added.

During the operation, the security forces recovered two explosive-laden motorbikes and a large number of arms and ammunitions.

Sarhadi Zwak, the governor’s spokesman, confirmed a group of terrorists had been arrested in a joint operation.

However, militants have not yet commented on the incident.
