Two British nationals have been arrested from Kabul in Afghanistan – they were reportedly in possession of dozens of AK-47 assault rifles which had the serial numbers erased. They were arrested along with two local persons and their driver and 30 AK-47s were recovered from them.
It is not known why or how such a large number of sophisticated weapons were found in a single location. One theory is that these could be meant for the private security agencies who have been engaged by foreign embassies and missions in Afghanistan. Probably, these embassies feel more safe with their own select band of security personnel rather than the official police machinery.
These weapons could be meant for therm.
But – why the serial numbers had been erased remains a mystery.
