WOULD-BE SUICIDE BOMBERS KILLED IN AFGHANISTAN
Afghan and coalition forces killed several would-be suicide bombers and detained additional insurgents during a security operation in the Jaghatu district of Afghanistan’s Wardak province today, military officials reported.
As the security force approached, several armed insurgents maneuvered toward the Afghan and coalition troops. After positively identifying the lethal threat, the security force engaged them. During the exchange, homemade explosives within the compound detonated, killing the suicide attack planners inside.
The insurgents were believed to be in the advanced stages of preparing for a suicide-bomb attack against Afghan and coalition forces. The security force seized suicide vests, firearms, grenades, containers of homemade explosives, blasting caps and weapon accessories. No civilians were harmed.
