KABUL (Pajhwok): Intelligence operatives have seized a vehicle full of explosives in Kabul, thwarting a possible terrorist attack in the capital, the spy service said on Wednesday.

National Directorate of Security (NDS) said in a statement to Pajhwok Afghan News the Hino truck full of explosives was seized and defused in Chahar Asiab district.

The explosives, weighting 2,500 kilograms of ammonium nitrate, had skillfully been placed in 50 bags in the truck for suicide attacks in the capital, the intelligence agency said.

The plot was organised by the Nasrullah, known as Huzifa, who was responsible for suicide bombings in Logar province. NDS said the organiser planned to take the truck to Kabul.

Based on information provided by NDS, the Taliban had already set attack targets in Kabul. The exact time or date of the seizure, however, was not mentioned in the statement.
