HERAT CITY (PANinfo-icon): Hundreds of kilograms of explosives were recovered from a motorised rickshaw in the western province of Herat, officials said on Thursday.

Weighing nearly 600 kg, the explosives were seized in Injeel district on Wednesday night, police spokesman Col. Noor Khan Nekzad said.

He told Pajhwok Afghan News the explosives placed in paint cans had been smuggled into the district from neighbouring Kandahar province on a bus.

The ministrants wanted to take the explosives to the provincial capital, Herat city, by the three-wheeler for disruptive activities, the police official said, adding drivers of the rickshaw and the bus were detained in connection with the case.

“The police stopped a rickshaw in the area and recovered a few bags from it,” shopkeeper Mohammad said.
