By Ians

Kabul, Nov 22: Security forces have nabbed a potential suicide bomber child in Afghanistan's Kunduz province, provincial police chief Mohammad Qasim Janglebagh said on Sunday.

"Rohullah, 11, was kidnapped by Taliban militants five years ago, and the child, who received training on how to make bomb and conduct suicide attacks, was captured by police on Saturday," Xinhua quoted Janglebagh as saying.


The boy, according to the official, has admitted during investigation that the militants gave him and many more children training in how to conduct suicide attacks.

In addition to training on how to tie an explosive device to his body and blow himself up, the Taliban sometimes also injected him with a special medicine, the child said, according to the police official.

Taliban militants have yet to make comment.
