KABUL — Afghan police arrested five would-be suicide bombers in Kabul on Thursday, the largest suicide team ever apprehended in the capital, officials said.

"If this team had made it through, it would have been a disaster, as we've seen in past instances," said Abdul Ghafar, deputy commander of the Afghan National Police crisis unit.He said police, acting on intelligence, stopped the suicide bombers as they were traveling in an SUV in the southeastern part of the city. He said the bomb team had been sent by the al-Qaida-linked Haqqani network.



"Today's operation marks a big success," Ghafar said. "Our capacities are improving day by day and also our ability to uncover such plots is improving day by day."
