Police and government officials on Thursday seized 100 toy guns which brought an unusual dose of reality to their potential customers - the guns, police said, were capable of shooting plastic "bullets" that could seriously injure their young owners. A joint Police-Ministry of Industry, Trade and Commerce operation uncovered the dangerous toys in the area of the Tel Aviv Central Bus Station. Police detained four suspects for investigation and all four were questioned under warning later in the day. Police said that they intended to continue the joint operations in an effort to crack down against store-owners who sold dangerous toys.
