Taliban deny sending girl to attack Afghan police

The Taliban denied Tuesday that they sent a 10-year-old girl to stage a suicide attack against Afghan police after the girl claimed her brother, who was identified as a Taliban commander, had wrapped her in an explosives-packed vest.

 

Border police in southern Helmand province arrested the girl's father and were searching for the brother, named Zahir, who had escaped with the suicide vest, a commander said. (AP)
