Six held over plot to kill Karzai in Kabul
 
 
 
Six people have been arrested after an alleged plot to assassinate Afghan President Hamid Karzai was foiled, the interior ministry said today. "The Afghan intelligence agency has arrested a group of six people in connection with an assassination plot against the life of the president," interior ministry spokesman Siddiq Siddiqui said. The news comes following a string of assassinations of key Karzai allies. On September 20, peace envoy Burhanuddin Rabbani was killed by a turban suicide bomber at his Kabul home, throwing into turmoil Karzai's strategy for trying to talk peace to the Taliban.
