Egyptian Police Nab Gaza Smuggling Ring

An Egyptian official says police have seized a large weapons cache in a coastal city near the Hamas-controlled Gaza region and have arrested three Gazans and one Egyptian suspect.

Abdel-Wahab Mabrouk, the governor of North Sinai province, says the four were part of a ring that smuggles weapons to and from the Hamas-run region.
