KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Two would-be suicide bombers have been detained in Jalalabad, the capital of southeastern Nangarhar province, the National Directorate of Security (NDSinfo-icon) said on Thursday.

The teenage detainees -- Shakirullah and Sajjad -- hail from the Kandal Atal locality of Pakistaninfo-icon’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) province. They studied at the Haider Khurd Madrassainfo-icon, the spy service said.

A statement from the intelligence network said the bombers planned attacks on sensitive installations on the outskirts of Jalalabad. Arrested in the border town of Torkham, the boys are under investigation.

The detainees, who reportedly confessed to their crime, were quoted as saying that Qari Bilal, a seminary teacher, had trained them on suicide bombing. The arrests reinforce Afghanistaninfo-icon’s claim that terrorist networks enjoy support and sanctuaries in Pakistan.
