Hayatullah Hayat, provincial governor of Helmand province has told that at least 40 drug labs were destroyed during the last two months; however, he said narcotic drugs are still the main source of financing terrorism.  “We have destroyed dozens of drug labs and we have killed drug traffickers and more than a hundred Taliban militants who were involved in this business. In addition, we have seized and destroyed more than three tons of narcotics”, Mr. Hayat said.
