KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): A vehicle-borne suicide attacker has been shot dead by police before he could reach his target in the capital Kabul, the Ministry of Interior said on Monday.

A statement from MoI said the suicide bomber in an explosives-laden Corolla car planned to carry out an attack in Kabul, but he was gunned down by the security personnel.

Police recognised the attacker on Sunday night and gunned him down in the Hussainkhel area of Bagrami district, the ministry said, adding the attacker tried to escape, but police followed him.

Having already received information about a possible suicide attack in Kabul, police had taken special security measures, the statement added.
