HERAT CITY (Pajhwok): A senior official of the Education Department in western Herat province has been arrested on corruption charges, authorities said on Tuesday.

Jilani Farhad, the governor’s spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News accomplices of the accused had earlier been interrogated on alleged embezzlement. The official’s identity, however, was not disclosed.

About 20 provincial government officials have been charged with administrative corruption over the past month in Herat.
