Egypt shelled trucks bringing arms from Sudan, sources say

CAIRO - Egypt's army shelled at least six vehicles trying to smuggle weapons into the country from Sudan last week, security sources told Reuters on Monday.
"There was a smuggling attempt last Thursday and border guards stopped it," a security source said, adding that the vehicles were intercepted near the southern Egyptian city of Aswan. Details on casualties were not immediately available.
The vehicles carrying ammunition and rocket-proprelled grenades were detected as they made their way along an ancient desert trade route linking Egypt and Sudan.
