The Afghan National Police (ANP) personnel discovered explosives in the country's northern province of Kunduz overnight, the provincial police chief said on Sunday.

"Based on a tip-off, the ANP intercepted a vehicle on outskirts of Kunduz city, capital of Kunduz province, and recovered more than 210 kg of explosives late Saturday night," Gen. Abdul Hamid Hamid told Xinhua.

One militant was captured, the vehicle was confiscated and the explosives were destroyed safely at the site by a bomb disposal team, the police official added.

The timely discovery of the explosives has foiled terror attacks and saved the city from an expected tragedy, Hamid noted.

The Kunduz province and neighboring Baghlan and Takhar provinces have been the scene of heavy clashes over the past couple of months as Taliban has been trying to challenge the government forces in the once relatively peaceful region.

On Saturday, six civilians were injured after Taliban fired three mortar shells toward the city.
