Officials said they have foiled a plot for a major attack by militants on the Afghan capital.
They said five Taliban fighters - Afghans and Pakistanis - were arrested in connection with the plan.
Afghan security forces seized almost 11 tons of explosives hidden in a truckload of potatoes from Pakistan.
Authorities said Saturday another three people were arrested in connections with another planned attack, an assassination attempt against the vice president.
