The Russian Frontier Guards Detained 26 Trespassers at the Tajik-Afghan Border

In January 2003, the Russian frontier guards detained 26 trespassers at the Tajik-Afghan border. As RIA Novosti was told in the press service of the frontier group of the Russian Federal Frontier Service in Tajikistan, this figure is 140% more than in the same period last year.

This January the frontier guards prevented twelve attempts to cross the border by drug traffickers. Four times they were forced to enter battle with armed trespassers of the state frontier; two times they were shelled: one time from the territory of Afghanistan, and one time from the Tajik territory.

In January, this year, the amount of the drugs confiscated at the Tajik-Afghan border sharply increased. This month the Russian frontier guards detained more than 500 kilogrammes of drugs (in January 2002 the figure was 120 kilogrammes).
