Police on Friday confiscated some 20 puppies that were apparently being bred by factory workers in the central town of Tira for use in dog fights.

The security forces arrived at the scene where the factory owner told them he was unaware of his employees' ploy.

Police said he agreed for the approximately month-old animals to be confiscated.

Several dog fighting busts have recently occurred in the so-called Triangle region, where the factory is located.
