HERAT CITY (PANinfo-icon): Security forces arrested a man on Saturday on the charge of smuggling nine historical artifacts in western Herat province, an official said.

The man was arrested in a hotel in the first police district of Herat City, the western zone police spokesman, Col. Abdul Rauf, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

He said the detainee, a resident of neighbouring Ghorinfo-icon province, had brought the artifacts to Herat for sale.

Some days ago, Ghor officials complained historical sites in the province were being illegally excavated by local warlords and commanders.
