Egypt seizes 2 tons of explosives headed to Sinai
Friday - 2/15/2013, 9:40am EST
EL-ARISH, Egypt (AP) -- Egyptian security officials say they have seized two tons of explosives headed to the Sinai Peninsula.
They say the explosives were seized Friday in the main Suez Canal transport tunnel Sinai to the rest of Egypt. The truck driver is being questioned.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief the media.
Lawlessness has been rife in Sinai since the ouster of longtime ruler Hosni Mubarak in February 2011.
In the past two years, Egypt's Interior Ministry has confiscated hundreds of weapons smuggled from Libya. Officials say some of these weapons are then moved into Gaza.
Sinai's Islamist militants also have benefited from the deterioration of security in the area and have begun to launch bolder attacks against the police and military.
