The other news

Continuing with our series of news of the Middle East conflict which Reuters does not report (despite its 100+ correspondents, editors, and photographers in the region), Egyptian police seized a pick-up truck yesterday laden with a ton of explosives and destined for the Gaza smuggling tunnels.  According to the linked AP article, police also found and destroyed four tunnels in Rafah.

Reuters, which almost never misses an opportunity to broadcast Israeli efforts to curtail the transportation of weapons into Gaza, was apparently too preoccupied with Iraqi depression over a ban on the national soccer team to notice events in Egypt.

Priorities, priorities.
