Weapons Found in Biscuit Boxes in Yemen
[An Nahar] A cargo of weapons originating in Turkey was seized by Yemeni authorities on Saturday in the southern port of Aden, the defense ministry Internet website26sep.net reported.
Citing security sources, the report said the arms had been found in boxes used for biscuits, in a container dispatched from Turkey.
An investigation has been opened into the discovery of weapons "destined to harm the security and stability" of Yemen, the ministry said, without identifying either the sender or intended recipient of the cargo.
The impoverished southern Arabian Peninsula nation is already awash with weapons.
