  • Description

    Police found four suitcases abandoned at Rome's Fiumicino airport yesterday, each containing a british sub-machine gun and a british-made bomb. The discovery was made early yesterday afternoon by security police. Inside the cases were also several newspaper cuttings of Israeli attacks and Arab refugee camps in the Lebanon. The guns were identified as of a type frequently used by Arab guerrillas. It was the first such discovery of arms since last November when police uncovered a similar type of arsenal which they traced back to four Libyans who had proceeded to Cairo from Rome after apparently abandoning the idea of hijacking a plane when they saw the metal detectors and extensive security measures at Fiumicino airport.
