The Ammonium Nitrate was placed in a Pakistani truck transporting to Afghanistan.
The police searched the truck and found the Ammonium Nitrate in the Torkham port.
The driver was arrested on accusation of this case.
Discoveries like this demonstrate the ever-increasing capability of Afghan National Security Forces to protect the civilians from indiscriminate IED attacks.
