KABUL: Security guards gunned down a suicide bomber on Sunday who tried to assassinate Afghan Interior Minister Bismullah Khan in an area north of Kabul, a spokesman for the ministry told AFP. The attacker attempted to detonate his explosives on a convoy of cars sent in advance of the minister’s vehicle, perhaps thinking Khan was inside, as he was being taken to visit the Panjshir valley, said spokesman Siddiq Siddiqui. 

“I can confirm a failed assassination attempt on the minister, a suicide bomber was involved, no casualties,” said Siddiqui.
