The Afghan interiror ministry says the country's security forces have managed to thwart a "major attack" on Kabul.

Five men were arrested and three vehicles packed with explosive devices were confiscated on Thursday morning in a derelict building outside the capital.

The Home Office says the attackers were members of the extremist Haqqani network.
