Two Britons arrested with unlicensed guns in Afghanistan

Two British nationals have been arrested in Afghanistan for carrying 30 unlicensed guns.

The men work for a private security company and were carrying deadly AK-47 assault rifles - many of which did not have serial numbers.

They were travelling with a local interpreter and driver on the Jalalabad road, east of Kabul, when they were arrested.

The company has been disbanded and all of its weapons have been seized.

Quentin Sommerville reports.
