LASHKARGAH (Pajhwok): Security officials claimed recovering over three tonnes of explosives and landmines from a car in the Dishu district of southern Helmand province on Saturday.

Brig. Gen. Hameedullah Siddiqui, the 604th border police commander, said the explosives were seized late on Friday in the Mulk Ghra locality.

The seized stuff included 1,710 kilograms of explosive, 910 electric fuses, 180 remote controls, 400 metres wire and eight guide books for mine making purposes.

The explosives, he said were being transferred from Pakistaninfo-icon to Afghanistaninfo-icon for carrying out sabotage activities.
