KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Four young suicide bombers have been detained by intelligence forces in northern Kunduz province, the governor said on Saturday, claiming the teenagers wanted to attack on his office.

Asadullah Omarkhel told a press conference here the four boys 16 and 17 years old hailed from western Ghorinfo-icon province and had been trained in Miagun Jan Agha religious seminary in Qarabagh district of Kabul for suicide attacks and other disruptive activities.

The teenage boys were arrested by the National Directorate of Security (NDSinfo-icon) forces in Kunduz before they could reach their target, the governor said, adding the detainees had confessed to planning suicide attacks in different parts of Kunduz.

Juma Gul, one of the detainees, said they had been learning religious studies in Qarabagh district for a year and one of their teachers encouraged them to carry out attacks against Afghan government, for which they were trained.

“They duped us into fighting against the government and into carrying out suicide attacks. We were sent to Kunduz in compliance with instructions of Ihsanullah, one of the detainees’ uncle, who is a Talibaninfo-icon commander in Kunduz,” he said, regretting his act.
