In light of the chaos and security crisis unfolding in Kabul and spreading throughout Afghanistan, the Afghan security forces prevented Monday 13 Afghan children from being taken to Pakistan’s Balochistan province and trained to be terrorists in local camps, Tolo News reports.
The Afghan Ministry of Justice noted that terrorists took the children to provide them terrorism training after deceiving their families and underscored the constant concern that the radicalization of children in Pakistani religious schools raises among Afghan leaders and regional and international analysts.
Justice Minister Fazel Ahmad Manawi pointed that with the widespread calamities and catastrophes in Afghanistan, which is in a state of war and obvious aggression, such incidents would only increase in number.
Meanwhile, as the Ministry of Refugees and Repatriations informed, Iranian border guards detained and handed over to Afghan security forces another 67 children smuggled by human traffickers out of the country in border areas between Iran and Afghanistan.
Zabiullah Rahmatzadeh, director of immigration at the Ministry of Refugees and Repatriations, underscored illegal migration and human trafficking as another issue authorities are dealing with, saying that Afghan police forces rescued in the last four months at least 70 people, including women and children, who were about to be taken out of the country.
