Afghan security forces on Saturday arrested five insurgents suspected of planning massive attacks on crowded areas of the capital Kabul, an intelligence spokesman said. National Directorate of Security (NDS) spokesman Shafiqullah Tahiri said the five men were seized on Kabul's outskirts with 10,000 kilograms of explosives (11 tons) stuffed in 400 bags and hidden beneath a cargo of potatoes in the back of a Pakistan-registered truck. The group also planned to assassinate the country's second vice-president Abdul Karim Khalili, the BBC reported.

the five men confessed to receiving training from Noor Afzal and Mohammad Omar, whom he identified as key
commanders of the Pakistani Taliban and Pakistan intelligence.
Surprise surprise :mad:

You watch, Karzai will blame us for provoking the attack. :rolleyes:

What's funny about this is how the men treat their women and a woman's "class" in society, yet they will readily don a dress if it suits their needs.
