JOHANNESBURG — A shipment of guns apparently bound for Somali pirate hunters has been seized at a home in South Africa, police said Tuesday, in what appeared to be a violation of a UN arms embargo in the war-ravaged country.

South African authorities said they did not know who was importing the weapons, but the seizure follows weeks of speculation over a controversial program to train anti-piracy forces in Somalia.

South African police spokesman Vincent Mdunge said police had been tracking the shipment and that four people were arrested last week after the guns were traced to the house outside Durban in eastern South Africa. Two of the suspects were South Africans; he would not disclose the two foreigners' nationalities.
