HERAT CITY (Pajhwok): An Iranian national has been rescued from his captors in western Herat province, where two suspected terrorists were arrested, officials said on Wednesday.

The Iranian had been kidnapped by unknown gunmen two days back but he was released from his captors during an operation by security forces on Wednesday morning, said the governor’s spokesman.

Jilani Farhad told one of the kidnappers was killed and a second detained following a clash with the security forces in Zawal district.

Separately, National Directorate of Security (NDSinfo-icon) personnel detained two suspected terrorists on a motorbike on the airport road in Herat City, the provincial capital.

Herat's National Directorate of Security also announced the arrest of two individuals charged with terrorist attacks and mines.

According to a newsletter made available to the media from the NDS office, the two men were arrested with a landmine.

After their arrest, the house of one of them was searched, which resulted in confiscation of four guns and some military equipment, the press release said.
