Kabul:Police in the Afghan capital Kabul arrested a would-be suicide bomber late Saturday night and foiled a terrorist attack in the city, Interior Ministry said in a statement released here Sunday.

“Acting upon intelligence report Kabul Police arrested a suicide bomber who was driving an explosive-laden mini-truck and attempting to blow it up in Kabul city,” the statement said.
