PARAKH (Pajhwok): Seventeen children have been rescued from being smuggled to Iran in central Panjsher province, police official said on Friday.

Police spokesman Ebadullah Ebad Farooqi told Pajhwok Afghan News that these children are under the age of 15 and all of them are hailing from Baghlan province.

Three smugglers were also detained, he said, adding the reason for the trafficking of these children was yet to be known, but police had launched an investigation in this regard.
