    Afghanistan militants planning 'huge' attack held in Kabul

    21 April 2012 Last updated at 02:51 ET | BBC News

    Five Afghan militants suspected of planning a large-scale attack in Kabul have been arrested, officials say.

    A truck carrying 10 tonnes of explosives was seized from the group, said a National Directorate of Security spokesman.

    The men, thought to belong to the Haqqani militant network, were planning to assassinate the second vice-president, Mohammad Khalili, he said.

    A video detailing the group's plans has also reported to have been found.

    It is worth commenting that Afghan security forces are not totally incapable. Kudos to them. Apparently, Taliban and the Haqqani Network has made elaborate plans for this summer.

    Well, the title is exactly as in the BBC News report, so I'd rather leave it like that.
