U.S.-trained Afghans raid heroin labs

Afghan authorities raid heroin labs
March 16, 2005

KABUL: U.S.-trained Afghan teams raided several heroin labs in eastern Afghanistan Tuesday, destroying the laboratories.

The Unied States-trained Afghanistan National Interdiction Unit says it has raided several drug labs in the Achin district of Nangarhar province.

They seized 33 pounds of heroin, 4,850 pounds of dry opium, 384 gallons of liquid opium, 881 pounds of dry chemicals and 329 gallons of liquid chemicals.

The NIU destroyed several drug labs and seized equipment used for converting opium into heroin.

The NIU received training from U.S. interdiction and security agencies and, so far, 77 Afghan men and women have graduated in three separate NIU classes.

Afghanistan is the world's largest producer of opium and heroin and the U.S.-backed Afghan government is striving to control the illegal trade.
