Britons face gun charges in Kabul

Have your say

Two British private security contractors, arrested four weeks ago in Afghanistan on suspicion of smuggling AK-47 assault rifles, have been charged by Afghan authorities.

Local police detained the men, named earlier this month as Julian Steele and James Davis, along with two Afghans in the capital Kabul on 3 January.

Afghan officials said they were transporting 30 AK-47s without firearms permits.
