PUL-I-KHUMRI (Pajhwok): A would-be suicide bomber was among five others arrested by intelligence forces in northern Baghlan province, officials said Tuesday.

Governor, Abdul Sattar Bariz told Pajhwok Afghan News that two militants were detained by National Directorate of Security (NDSinfo-icon) forces in Doshi district of Baghlan.

A would-be suicide bomber and his guider were detained when entering to Pul-I-Khumri, the provincial capital, he said.

Local officials said that a drug smuggler along with 49 kilograms of hashish was also arrested in Baghlan.

Yar Mohammad, a resident of Pul-I-Khumri City, was happy about the detention and said, “NDS forces are working day and night for the protection and safety of people, but some powerful individuals try to create problems to them,”

He asked the government to award honest people and punish warlords and law violators.
