Police arrested a 13-year-old child Sunday after a submachine gun was found in his school backpack, along with an ammunitions clip and bullets.
Policemen stopped the boy on the street when his behavior raised their suspicions. Asked where he was going, he told the officers that he was on his way to school to borrow books from the library.
Dissatisfied, the officers searched the child's bag, finding the weapon.
Police were checking whether the boy may have been transferring weapons for criminals.
