Police have discovered arms and ammunition in north Afghanistan's Sari Pul province, provincial police spokesman Din Mohammad Nazari said on Wednesday.

The weapons cache was discovered in two houses located in Kohistanat district, including a U.S.-made M16 assault rifle, an RPG-7 rocket, and thousands of bullets and cartridges, the official added.

In similar operations, police recovered arms and ammunition, including three pieces of AKM-type assault rifles in east Afghanistan's Paktia province a couple of days ago.

Seven persons were taken into custody on charge of involvement in criminal activities such as selling drugs and robbery in the eastern Kapisa province on Tuesday.

The Afghan caretaker government, which has recovered thousands of light and heavy weaponry, including battle tanks over the past two years, has vowed to recover arms and ammunition from anyone living outside security organs as part of its efforts to ensure law and order in the country.
