"Two ring leaders of terrorists who organized a deadly suicide attack on the mourners inside a shrine in Kabul in December 2011 have been detained,"Lutfullah Mashal told reporters at a press conference.
In the deadly attack on Dec. 6, 2011 on Shiite mourners, 80 people including women and children were killed and more than 150 other were injured.
In a footage displayed at the press conference, one of the arrested men, while admitting his involvement in planning the deadly suicide attack on the shrine and denouncing it as a crime, requested pardon from the government.
Afghanistan`s Attorney General Mohammad Ishaq Alko said both the arrested men might be awarded capital punishment. (*)
