Tripoli, 1 December 2013:
Members of Tobruk’s Battalion 415, part of the town’s border guard, have seized a car carrying 150 bags of explosives, according to Libyan news agency LANA.
The explosives, said to weigh around 900kg in total, included anti-tank mines. The car was stopped travelling on a desert road heading in a westerly direction and the driver arrested.
The mines are believed to be a similar type of explosive which has been used in some attacks in Benghazi, including one on the head of the Benghazi Joint Security Room (BJSR) Colonel Abdullah Al-Saiti on 18 November.
Although rudimentary, when fitted with a mobile phone detonation device, these mines are deadly devices.
