Egypt seizes another arms cache in Sinai, official says
Two big busts in 2 days. I wonder how many weapons like this did made it past the Egyptians?
Egyptian authorities have seized a weapons cache in the Sinai desert, a security official said on Sunday, only two days after authorities said they had captured a large stockpile of explosives bound for the restive peninsula.
The arms were seized overnight in al-Arish, the capital city of the North Sinai district, the official said. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.
“The seized weapons include 21 anti-aircraft shells, six anti-tank mines and an anti-aircraft gun,” he said. No arrests were made.
On Friday, security authorities said they had captured two tons of explosivesin the main Suez transport tunnel that links Egypt to the Sinai.
