Afghan police seize 20 tons of heroin-making chemicals

Afghan authorities said Monday they had seized 20 tons of chemical used for manufacturing heroin.

The massive seizure happened from a container on a trailer in Police District 5 of western Herat province.

The liquid chemical was hidden in 1,000 barrels. It worth $10 million and the loading happened in southern Kandahar province, said Abdul Ahad Walizada, a spokesman for Herat police.

The driver of the trailer who was a permanent resident of Kandahar was arrested in connection with the seizure.

Pictures released to the media by police showed signs of warning on barrels which were all in silver color.

Afghanistan remains the world’s top producer of opium. Last year, production of the crop increased 43 percent as eradication collapsed amid spreading insurgency.
