Suspects detained in foiled attack on Kabul conference

Several Taliban insurgents were captured this week in connection with a foiled attack on an international donor conference in Kabul, Afghanistan, the military said.

The man who allegedly planned the attack was detained Wednesday night, said a statement from NATO's International Security Assistance Force Thursday. A Taliban sub-commander and several other suspected militants were detained earlier in the week.

Spokesman Col. Rafael Torres said combined NATO and Afghan forces were successful in preventing attacks on the aid meeting, which was attended by representatives of nations around the world including U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
