Two Palestinian men were arrested by Border Police soldiers at a checkpoint in the West Bank on Wednesday after they were searched and were found attempting to smuggle pipe bombs on their bodies as they passed through the crossing.

According to police, the two suspects, who are from Jenin, are expected to be interrogated by security forces.

Forces have scouted the scene along with bomb disposal experts to rule out the existence of other potentially dangerous devices.
