Egyptian security uncovers weapons cache in Sinai

Sept. 26, 2010 7:35 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 27, 2010 9:38 P.M.)
EL-ARISH, Egypt (Ma'an) -- Egyptian security forces seized a cache of explosives in the Sinai Pensinsula on Sunday, security sources said.

Officials investigated reports from locals who had found debris which appeared to be remains of a projectile 20 kilometers west of the coastal town El-Arish.

Security forces said the rocket left over from a previous war with Israel, but on moving the rocket to detonate it, officers uncovered a weapons depot containing half a ton of TNT explosives and anti-aircraft shells. The ammunition was packaged in bags ready to be smuggled through underground tunnels into Gaza, sources said.

According to the source, the rocket was detonated and the area closed. Residents who had reported the rocket were questioned, but none were detained.
