"Afghan intelligence officials say they have arrested six people who they believe were planning to assassinate President Hamid Karzai. The alleged plotters had recruited one of Mr Karzai's bodyguards and had possible links to the militant Haqqani network, the officials said. Analysts say the arrests may be seen as part of a plan to discredit Pakistan." (10/05/11)
