KANDAHAR, Afghanistan, Feb. 12 (Xinhua) -- Security forces have arrested five Taliban insurgents including a would-be suicide bomber child who was set free in Kabul months ago, the department of National Directorate for Security (NDS) said in Kandahar on Sunday.

"We have arrested five rebels including three armed Taliban rebels and two suicide bomber children," an official with the NDS department or intelligence agency told newsmen here.

He also showed the arrested men including the two would-be suicide bomber teens to the journalists. However, he did not reveal his name nor the exact date of the arrest of the insurgents.

"Taliban recruited me last year to target foreign troops but police arrested me and President Karzai set me free and sent to an orphanage in Kabul. After passing sometimes there, I managed to flee and tried to target foreign forces again but again I was captured," 10-year-old Azizullah told newsmen.

He also said that he is from Paktia's provincial capital Gardez city. Talking about his relations with Taliban, the boy said, "Some Taliban last year, one day strapped a vest with some electric wires around my body and told me to press the button when you meet foreign soldiers on the streets or bazaar."
