Israeli detained in India for bullets found in baggage

An Israeli woman who has finished her army service was detained at the airport in Mumbai after an inspection of her baggage produced four M-16 bullets left over from her military service. She was freed after intervention by the Israeli consulate.

It's not the first time such an incident has occurred. The Foreign Ministry warned travelers to check their baggage before leaving the country to make sure it doesn't happen to them.
