JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Intelligence agents have arrested two would-be suicide bombers before they could reach their targets in eastern Nangarhar province, an official said on Thursday.  

Attuallah Khogyani, the governor’s spokesman, told a press conference here that the detainees belonged to Bara sub-district of Khyber tribal region in Pakistaninfo-icon’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

He said the alleged suicide bombers had to receive suicide vests in the Khogyani district of Nangarhar.

He said the two were to strike key government departments in Jalalabad, the provincial capital, but did not name any organ.

National Directorate Security personnel played a video to reporters, in which the arrested men are confessing to their intention. The detainees say they have come from Pakistan’s Bara locality.
