Explosives Seized Near Iran Border in Herat

Police has seized some explosives in the western Herat province, Herat border police said on Saturday

The explosives that include 52 missiles were seized in the province's Kakari area of Kohsan district, the Acting Chief of Herat Border Police, Hamidullah, told TOLOnews reporter.

Herat border police said that the explosives are modern and unused and according to initial investigations, the explosives are made in China and have been probably brought to Afghanistan recently.

Meanwhile, the Police Chief of the western Farah province, Faqir Askar, said police has arrested an Iranian who had come to the province to conduct insurgency attacks.

Mr Askar said the man is a resident of Iran's Kerman city and had confessed that he had entered the province with a suicide waste coat.

"The first day the man was not speaking at all. After we forced him to talk, he told us that his name was Saeed and he is a resident of Kerman and has come to Afghanistan to take part in jihad," the Police Chief of Herat, Mohammad Faqir Askar, told TOLOnews.

Afghan and foreign officials had previously said that Iran's government was supporting the insurgents, a claim repeatedly denied by Iranian authorities.
