Afghan security foils Kabul bombing attempt

Security forces in Afghanistan are on high alert after an attempted suicide attack. The bomber drove this vehicle loaded with explosives in an affluent suburb of Kabul near several embassies. Afghan intelligence officers shot the would-be suicide bomber dead around 9 am, police said. (SOUNDBITE) (Dari) MOHAMMAD DAUD AMIN, DEPUTY KABUL POLICE CHIEF, SAYING: "Fortunately before he reached his target he was recognized by our security forces and shot dead," says the deputy police chief. The failed attack suggests insurgents are shifting tactics, testing Afghan security forces in Kabul after a series of high-profile attacks on Western targets last year. It comes the same morning as bombings the Taliban claimed responsibility for in Jalalabad and Logar, which left three dead.
