Kabul: The Afghan security forces have thwarted a plot by the militants to detonate an improvised explosive device in Afghan’s capital city Kabul.

A remote-controlled improvised explosive device was discovered from the 5th police district of the city before it was detonated, reported Khaama Press, citing, the Criminal Investigation Department (CID), as saying.

The explosives were planted on a roadside.
