Suez police forces seized 500 kilograms of explosives on Friday believed to
have been en route to South Sinai.

Major General Abdel Refaat, the Suez security chief, was notified that
smugglers in Cairo were preparing to transport the explosives, which are
used to create tunnels through mountains for mining.

Police set up ambushes along the Suez-Ahmed Hamdy Tunnel Road and
apprehended the smuggler’s vehicle, arresting the suspect. The suspect
confessed to being on his way to South Sinai to hand the explosives over to
other smugglers.
