Afghanistan Arrests 2 Suspects in Deadly Kabul Bombing


Afghan security forces have arrested two men with al-Qaida links suspected of organizing a deadly car bomb attack outside the offices of a U.S. security firm in Kabul.

Afghan state television says the suspects - identified as a Tajik national and an Afghan - confessed to a leading role in the August 29 attack on the American private firm, DynCorp.

The company provides security guards for President Hamid Karzai and training for Afghanistan's police force. In the attack, nine people, including three Americans, were killed.

The TV report says the two also confessed to being involved in a suicide bombing on a busy shopping street in Kabul October 23 that killed three people, including the bomber.
