"The Haqqani Network was planning to attack an important government building in Jalalabad city, but fortunately our [NDS] personnel foiled their plan," Khugyani said, as quoted by a Facebook statement from the media office of the provincial governor.

Authorities detonated the car in a controlled explosion.
