A would-be suicide bomber was arrested in central Parwan province, local officials said.
The detained man, who is allegedly from northern Balkh province, was planning to attack the Parwan governor Basir Salangi, said the provincial spokesperson Roshna Khalid in a statement.
It was not clear if the arrest took place Wednesday or Thursday.
National security forces arrested the potential attacker and two others in the central capital Charikar as they were attempting to enter into the city, the statement said.
Khalid said that it was the seventh suicide attacker arrested by Afghan security forces that was planning to attack the governor.
