Arms Train Back to Iran




MOSCOW -- Kyrgyzstan has sent 17 train cars filled with weapons and headed to Afghanistan back to Iran, Interfax reported Tuesday.


Customs officials in the southern Kyrgyz town of Osh discovered the arms, disguised as humanitarian cargo, after realizing the accompanying documents had been forged, the news agency said, citing the Kyrgyz Foreign Ministry.


Officials said the arms and ammunition were going to factions fighting against the Taliban militia, which controls most of Afghanistan.
