Afghan Special Forces arrested the would-be suicide bomber, the member who facilitated his transfer, the member who provided him shelter, and the member who supplied equipment for the operation. They reported that the Taliban team was deployed in a bid to assassinate Gen. Malik, the director of Taj Private University. Hanzala, who carried the bomb, was recruited as someone who is typically responsible for training other suicide bombers in the Kunduz Province. His capture will hopefully put a wrench in future plans for assassination.
