"Afghan security forces shot dead a would-be bomber Monday outside the venue for a meeting of regional leaders and tribal powerbrokers starting in Kabul later this week, the Afghan government said. The man was carrying a bomb in a box close to the entrance to the site where the meeting will be held, but was shot before he could detonate the explosive, Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqi said."
