Security officials in Marsa Matrouh have confiscated 108 Grad rockets and
400,000 rounds of anti-aircraft ammunition bound for Sinai in a foiled
smuggling attempt.

The head of Egypt's drug control was informed that smugglers would take the
Matrouh International Road from Libya overnight. Authorities set up several
security checkpoints and police patrolled the desert roads to arrest the
smugglers.

Security authorities stationed in the Ras al-Hekma area found the weapons in
a vehicle that had driven off the road. The people inside reportedly fled.

Officials are intensifying efforts to find and arrest the smugglers.
