KANDAHAR CITY (PAN): A would-be suicide bomber was killed after sneaking into the Spin Boldak district of southern Kandahar province from Pakistan on Saturday, an official said.

Border police positively identified the bomber and shot him dead at 12.15pm, the governor’s spokesman Javed Faisal told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Police fired at the militant after he ignored warnings to stop, the official said. As a result of police firing, his suicide vest exploded, killing the suspect and wounding a woman and a girl.
