AIBAK (Pajhwok): An explosives-laden vehicle was seized and two landmines detected and defused separately in northern Samangan province, an official said on Monday.

Two suspects have been arrested in connection with the terror plots, Mohammad Sidiq Azizi, the Samangan governor’s spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

The bomb-rigged vehicle was being taken for Taliban insurgents but NDS personnel captured it in Dara-i-Sauf Paeen district.

The gubernatorial spokesman did not provide further details into the incident and informed about detection of two landmines in Aibak city, the provincial capital.

The explosives were then defused, said Azizi, adding the terrorist plots were successfully prevented.
