KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The spy service on Thursday claimed thwarting an organised terrorist attack on the Defence Ministry’s compound in capital Kabul.

A statement from the National Directorate of Security (NDSinfo-icon) said five suicide bombers belonging to the Haqqani networkinfo-icon wanted to storm the Ministry of Defence (MoD).

The assailants had been planning to first ram their explosives-laden car into the MoD building and then engage security forces in a gun-battle to pave the ground for two suicide bombers to enter the ministry, the statement said.

The remaining three terrorists captured by NDS officials were equipped with weapons and they wanted to follow the suicide bombers in their attack.
