KABUL – Afghanistan’s intelligence agency said on Tuesday it had arrested three men planning suicide attacks in Kabul, including two from a Pakistan-based cell run by the capital’s Taleban-era deputy police chief.
The two were seized this week while trying to enter the city from neighbouring Logar province, spokesman Sayed Ansari told reporters.
They were part of a Pakistan-based cell organised by Mullah Mohammad Ibrahim Hanifi, who was the deputy police chief of Kabul during the 1996-2001 Taleban regime, he said.
“Mullah Ibrahim Hanifi, who is living in Pakistan, has been organising suicide attacks in southern Afghanistan. The two men we captured were also sent by him,” he said.
A mullah? An Islamic cleric? Doesn’t he realize the Qur’an forbids suicide? (He does, of course. He just doesn’t regard suicide bombing as suicide per se — and to this, Muslim moderates have never formulated a response.)
