Cairo Airport authorities have launched an investigation after of a bag was detected coming from Qatar containing a large number of electrical circuits used in explosive devices.Arab media says seven Gaza pilgrims were arrested, probably related to this incident. Hamas has been pleading with Egyptian authorities to allow them to pass through, indicating that perhaps Hamas was the intended recipient of the devices, not Sinai Islamists.
The bag was detected by police officers among the luggage of Palestinian pilgrims returning from Saudi Arabia after the Hajj season, which ended recently with Eid al-Adha.
According to initial investigations, pilgrims returning to Gaza were seeking to smuggle the circuits to militants in Rafah, North Sinai.
No further details have been released on the incident or the identities of those involved.
Yeah, this will help Egypt trust Gazans....
