    Afghan authorities say they have captured a would-be suicide bomber who planned to target international forces operating in Afghanistan.

    The man in custody is a Pakistani who Afghan officials claim received training from the Pakistan's spy agency, but the Taliban say they have no need to recruit Pakistanis as US forces actions in Afghanistan have meant there are plenty of Afghan recruits.
