JAMRUD, April 27: The Khassadar personnel have arrested a German couple in Khyber Agency, officials said.

The administration officials told TNN that the couple was travelling from Peshawar to Khyber Agency when the paramilitary Khassadar personnel stopped them at the Karkhano checkpost.

The officials arrested the foreigners because they did not have no-objection certificate to enter the tribal areas.

Initially they were handed over the assistant political agent and later they were given in custody of the Peshawar Police.

The German nationals said they were tourists and that they wanted to visit Afghanistan.
