KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The spy service on Monday said 26 militants have been detained as a result of a series of operations in southern Kandahar province.

In a statement, the National Directorate of Security (NDSinfo-icon) said intelligence operatives detained the armed militants from various parts of the province, including the provincial capital, Kandahar City.

It claimed the detainees had been planning to detonate a car full of explosives and a bomb-rigged rickshaw, but they were arrested before doing so.

The vehicle and the rickshaw, one rocket launcher, nine Kalashnikovs,  two pistols, eight roadside bombs, a walkie-talkie set, thousands of bullets of light weapons and some military equipment were recovered from the detainees, the statement said.
