An Egyptian security official said police have seized a pickup truck loaded with a ton of explosives near the country's volatile border with the Gaza Strip. The official said Monday that smugglers abandoned the truck when police in the border town of Rafah chased them. He said several automatic weapons and munition also were found in the truck, whose cargo was meant to be smuggled through secret tunnels to Gaza. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media, said police found and destroyed four tunnels in Rafah Monday in a separate operation.
