According to the local security officials, the young bombers were looking to carry out suicide attacks in different parts of Kunduz province and were arrested by intelligence operatives.
Provincial governor’s spokesman Abdul Wasih Basil said the detained individuals are originally residents of central Ghor province of Afghanistan.
In the meantime, provincial governor Asadullah Omar Khel told reporters that the young men were trained in a Madrasa in Qarabagh district of Kabul.
He said the suicide bombers were encouraged by Madrasa teacher to carry out attacks against the government of Afghanistan.
The Afghan children have regularly been recruited by the militant groups, the Taliban and the Haqqani network for the terrorist related activities, including suicide attacks.
Madrasas are described as the main recruitment source for the militant groups as poor families in Pakistan and Afghanistan send their sons to such madrassas for free education and lodging.
Earlier, a 12-year-old child assigned for a suicide mission surrendered himself to the security forces in the eastern Nangarhar province of Afghanistan.
According to the local security officials, the child was recently taken to Jalalabad city from the neighboring Pakistan for the suicide mission.
