Herat security officials announce the arrest of one of the miners in the province.
Ministry of Interior has published a newsletter: Herat Police Headquarters detained one of the miners from the (Pashtun Zarghun) district of the province when they were seizing a remote control-controlled barrel that was used to target security forces and civilians.
The newsletter adds: The detainee confessed to his first charge of armed robbery and assassination. The use of mines is one of the main tactics of the government’s armed opposition, which are using security forces to fight.
This is while the victims of such attacks have always been civilians and non-military, and in some cases the government’s armed opposition has also been victims of these roadside blasts.
