A suicide bomber who failed to carry out an attack using a motorcycle packed with explosives was detained in Lashkagah city, the provincial capital of Helmand province.

According to the statement of provincial government media office the suicide bomber was arrested from the vicinity of Nawa district in Zhar Sahib area.

The statement further added that a motorcycle packed with explosives was also confiscated before the suicide bomber manages to take it to Lashkargah city for the attack.

The Helmand governor’s office in a statement said a suicide bomber who was sent by the Taliban group to carry out a suicide attack in Mukhtar area in Lashkargah city, has surrendered to the security forces.

The statement further added that the suicide bomber refrained to carry out the attack and today handed himself over to the police forces in the city.
