Afghan Police Raid Heroin Labs In 'Dangerous' Badakhshan Province

Afghanistan's security forces have stepped up their crackdown on heroin labs and poppy farms in Taliban-controlled regions of the country's northeastern Badakhshan Province. Its long border with Tajikistan makes the province one of the main heroin production hubs for Central Asia. But poppy eradication has proven difficult with local farmers relying on the crop as one of their only sources of income.
