AFP – HEART: Afghan police said today they had seized nearly 20 tonnes of explosives stashed in boxes marked “food, toys and kitchenware” that were imported from neighbouring Iran.

The discovery was made yesterday in a customs office in the western province of Nimroz on the Iranian border, deputy provincial police chief, Mohammad Musa Rasouli, said. “We found these materials hidden in a 40-foot (12-metre) shipping container that had come from Iran. The explosives were disguised as merchandise like food, toys and kitchenware,” he added.
