The National Directorate of Security (NDS) said the would-be suicide bomber was shot dead before he manage to reach to his target.

NDS said the man was wearing a suicide bombing vest but there are no reports regarding the exact location where the bomber was looking to carry out an attack.

This comes as the US Embassy in Kabul earlier issued a security alert warning its citizens regarding militants planning attacks in the city.

“The U.S. Embassy in Kabul continues to receive reports of militants planning unspecified attacks in Kabul City and elsewhere in Afghanistan against locations and individuals with potential American connections,” the alert by the embassy states.

It also adds that the militants are looking to attacks Afghan and U.S. government facilities, foreign embassies, foreign guest houses, restaurants, hotels, airports, civilian institutes, and educational centers.

The latest security alert by the US Embassy comes as the anti-government armed militant groups are looking to carry out attacks in Kabul, specifically following the death of Mullah Akhtar Mansoor in a US drone strike last Saturday. -KP
