Bill Roggio: Kabul funeral suicide bombers trained in Pakistan, Afghan intelligence says

The NDS claimed it detained a would-be suicide bomber who was supposed to be blowing himself up along with three others at yesterday’s funeral for the son of an Afghan senator who was killed after security forces opened fire during a protest in Kabul a day earlier. Twenty people were killed and 89 more were wounded as the three suicide bombers detonated among the crowd of mourners, according to TOLONews. Afghanistan’s Chief Executive Officer, Abdullah Abdullah, and the acting Foreign Affairs Minister, Salahuddin Rabbani, were present at the funeral but were not injured.

The NDS claimed that they arrested one of the suicide bombers, who decided not to execute the attack. A video confession of the erstwhile suicide bomber was posted on the NDS Facebook page.
