JALALABAD (Pajhwok): A would-be suicide bomber was shot dead before detonating the explosive jacket in the Ghanikhelo district of eastern Nangarhar province on Sunday, an official said.

Governor spokesman Attaullah Khogyani told Pajhwok Afghan News the incident happened on the first day of Eid-ul-Fitr before noon in the 25th Wayali area.

He said the suicide bomber wanted to strike security forces but was gunned down before reaching the target and blowing himself.
