Afghan police: 5 suicide bombers arrested in Kabul

KABUL (AP) - Afghan police, acting on an intelligence tip, have arrested five would-be suicide bombers as they were trying to enter Kabul - the largest suicide bomb team ever apprehended in the capital.

A spokesman for Afghan National Police says the suicide bombers had been sent by the al-Qaida-linked Haqqani network.

An Interior Ministry spokesman says the five were riding in a sports utility vehicle when they were captured while entering the city from the south.
