KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): Police arrested two men with weapons and military uniforms in Afghanistaninfo-icon's heavily-fortified capital of Kabul on Tuesday, an official said.

The arms and uniforms were seized in the Khairkhana neighbourhood, the 101st Asmaee police zone crime branch chief told Pajhwok Afghan News.
