Security forces on Friday claimed to have foiled a terror bid by arresting three suspects who were trying to move a large quantity of explosives from Bannu to Peshawar.

The security forces say they intercepted a vehicle on the Indus Highway near the Kohat tunnel, and found up to 400 kgs of explosive material during the search.

The security personnel have impounded the explosive-laden vehicle and shifted the arrested suspects to an undisclosed location for interrogation.

The arrested men have been identified as Umar Niaz, Akramullah and Ismatullah.
