The Afghan security forces thwarted a plot by the anti-government armed militant groups to carry out another major explosion in Kabul city.

The Criminal Investigation Department of Kabul Police Commandment said the explosives were placed in a fuel tanker to carry out an explosion in the city.

The source further added that the explosives were discovered and defused by the Explosives Ordnance Disposal team of the 101st Asmayee Zone before the militants manage to carry out an attack.

The fuel tanker was parked in Dispatchery area located in the 9th police district of the city, the Criminal Investigation Department added.
