The insurgent was found with 30 yellow and orange plastic containers filled with explosive material and two bombs weighing 100 kilogrammes each

When the driver reportedly ignored police orders to stop at a checkpoint on Saturday night, the officers opened fire wounding the man and arrested the potential attacker.

Police arrested the driver of a truck carrying three tons of explosives in what appeared to be an attempted suicide bombing in a section of the Afghan capital near a university for engineering, officials said Sunday. They found 30 buckets filled with ammonium nitrate hidden beneath boxes of tomatoes inside the truck's cargo hold. The containers were connected by yellow electric cables, photographs showed.

The Afghan security forces foiled a deadly plot of the anti-government armed militants to detonated a truck packed with explosives in Kabul city.

Niagara Regional Police said the incident possibly occurred in the vicinity of an adult entertainment establishment in the city. When officers arrived, witnesses said that a man had been shot in the parking lot and was put into a vehicle and driven off.

He said: "The truck wanted to enter the centre of the city and target some government installations".

Fears of another large attack have lingered after a massive truck bomb struck downtown Kabul in May, killing more than 150 people.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack - the deadliest in the city since 2001 - which Western officials say was caused by more than 1,500kg of explosives packed in a sewage truck. Investigators linked that attack to the Haqqani network, an offshoot of the Taliban.
