Police forces thwart militants bid to detonate a mosque in Herat

The Afghan police forces have thwarted an armed militants bid to detonate a mosque in western Herat province of Afghanistan.

The Ministry of Interior (MoI) said Monday that the militants were looking to detonate two improvised explosive devices inside a mosque in Adraskan district but the National Police forces discovered and defused the explosives with the support of local residents.

According to a statement released by MoI, “The criminal terrorists do not even respect holy places as part of their activities against Islam and humanity.”

Herat is among the relatively calm provinces in West of Afghanistan but the anti-government armed elements are active in some of its remote districts where they often attempt to carry out destabilizing acts.
