JALALABAD (PAN): Nine insurgents including a Pakistani citizen were arrested during an operation in eastern Nangarhar province, the National Directorate of Security (NDS) said on Monday.

A statement from the spy service said Afghan forces detained the militants after they crossed the Torkham border on their way to Jalalabad – the Nangarhar capital.

The individuals, trained in Pakistani militant camps, planned disruptive activities in the province, according to the NDS, which said another suspect had been held with 40 kilograms of explosives.
