Three Taliban fighters and two 12 year old would-be suicide attackers along with their weapons are presented to media representatives in Kandahar.
KANDAHAR, Afghanistan — Two boys equipped with suicide vests were
arrested here over the weekend, less than a year after one of them had
been pardoned by President Hamid Karzai for the same crime. Both were
presented to reporters Sunday.
The boys, named Nasibullah and Azizullah, were described by officials
from the National Directorate of Security, Afghanistan's intelligence
agency, as 12-year-olds who had been trained in Pakistani madrassas. The
officials refused to give their names for security reasons.
Both boys appeared calm and outspoken at the news conference, and it
was unclear if they understood the gravity of what it would mean to
carry out suicide bombings.
Azizullah said he went to a madrassa
