A 70-year-old US national has been arrested at the international airport in Lahore, after a cache of cartridges was found in his possession, a media report said.

Gary George William was arrested on Thursday at the Allama Iqbal international airport after airport personnel recovered 30 cartridges from his luggage.

William, who is a former principal of a missionary school in Sahiwal - 380 km from Lahore, was on his way to London on PIA flight 203, reports said.

Security officials demanded a permission letter for the cartridges from William but he could not provide one. He was then arrested and handed over to the police.
