Report: Egypt Discovers More Weapons

A report Tuesday said that Egypt had discovered 11 more weapons caches hidden in Sinai, with guns, missiles, explosives, and other items that were to have been smuggled into Gaza. The catch yielded more than four tons of TNT, Egyptian reports said, along with surface to air missiles, hand grenades, and guns. In addition, the report said, security troops had discovered two large smuggling tunnels meant for moving vehicles into Gaza. In recent weeks, Egypt has reported finding other caches, with large amounts of weapons in those caches as well.
