Chaman: Border guards seize weapons
CHAMAN: A guard on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border says security forces have seized weapons and ammunition from a car that attempted to cross the border from a militant-infested region of Afghanistan.
Troops seized 13 rocket shells, four rifles, two pistols and more than 100 machine gun rounds from the car on Tuesday near Chaman, said Colonel Syeed Agha Muhammad Haider, a border guard. No one was arrested and the two men driving the car fled. Chaman neighbors southern Afghanistan, where Taliban militants have been battling the US-backed Afghan government.
