Kabul: A suicide bomber arrested in southern Aghanistan's Kandahar province, a Taliban stronghold, has said suicide attackers receive special injection before conducting an attack.

Arrested suicide bomber Rahmatullah said Tuesday that after receiving training in Pakistan he was assigned to attack Kandahar provincial governor but was arrested before reaching the target.
Rahmatullah is a resident of Kandahar's neighbouring Uruzgan province and investgators are trying to extract more information about the terrorist networks and their plans in the country, the statement said.
Militancy-plagued Afghanistan has been facing terror attacks mostly in the shape of suicide and roadside bombings which often claim the lives of civilians.
