Afghanistan arrests 11 Taliban fighters
by UPI

KABUL, Afghanistan -- Counter-terror agents in Afghanistan arrested 11 suspected Taliban members and seized bomb-making equipment in various provinces, officials said Wednesday.

At a Kabul news conference, Gen. Abdul Manan Farahi of the Interior Ministry said the arrests had been made in Kabul, as well as in the provinces of Kandahar, Helmand and Maidan Wardak, Kuwait's KUNA news agency reported.

He said three of the suspects were Pakistani citizens, two of whom allegedly had been assigned to assassinate the governor of Helmand.

Farahi said explosives had been recovered in most of the arrests, including fully assembled suicide vests and belts, the report said.

He declined to give details on where the explosives had come from or were manufactured, KUNA said.
