(Reuters) - More than a dozen Afghan soldiers suspected of plotting to attack the Defence Ministry in Kabul were arrested after 10 suicide vests were found inside the ministry, the New York Times reported, citing Afghan and Western officials.

-- The detonation of 10 suicide vests in and around the Afghan M.O.D. would have unleashed chaos in the country and opened the door for far greater attacks with devastating effect. I think we should anticipate that at some point Karzai will say that he can no longer guarantee the safety of ISAF personnel in Afghanistan. -- MCR
