Afghan police say they have arrested six men whom they accuse of planning to carry out suicide bombing attacks.

The Kabul deputy police chief, General Mohammad Daoud Amin, told RFE/RL's Radio Free Afghanistan that police seized six vests that could be used for suicide bombings, as well as some 50 grenades and guns, when the suspects were arrested in a raid in the capital Kabul on February 3.

Amin said investigators have not yet learned what targets the suspects may have been planning to attack.

An investigation has been launched into the identities of the men.
