MENA, or Middle East News Agency, said the Egyptian Army captured two
rockets, two bombs and four
rocket-propelled grenades. The Army was also said to have seized four gun
sights, three machine guns and ammunition.
The report came amid allegations that the Libyan rebels were acquiring
large amount of weapons from Egypt. The Egyptian military regime had denied
the arms smuggling and said it was operating to block the shipments.
The Egyptian news agency said the latest weapons shipment was stopped at
the Saloum crossing between Egypt and Libya. MENA said the weapons were
transported in one vehicle.
