Egyptians Arrest Weapons Smuggler, Find Huge Cache

The Egyptians continue to find huge weapon caches in areas next to the Israeli border. Same story as before...they arrest a smuggler, search his home and find weapons and explosives. The difference this time is they found over a half a ton of explosives! They also found over a ton of bomb making materials.

Here's the story from YNET.

Egyptian police arrest weapons smuggler, tons of explosives

Egyptian police arrested early Wednesday a weapons smuggler and found in his house near the border with Israel more than half a ton of explosives and 1,200 kilograms (2,600 pounds) of potassium nitrate used in making bombs, a security official said.
