Three Beduin were arrested trying to smuggle nearly 200 crates of automatic weapons and ammunition from Egypt into Gaza early Friday. Egyptian police seized the weapons on a truck in the village of Ballouza, some 100 kilometers east of the Egypt-Gaza border. The smugglers were heading north to the village of Sheik Zuwayed, where they planned to veer off-road toward the border, north Sinai police Captain Essam Rizk said. The Beduin confessed to police that they planned to smuggle the weapons to Palestinians through underground tunnels in the border town of Rafah, Rizk said.
