Police Seize 1,400 kg TNT in Sinai

Oh dear, someone was planning a good firework for Christmas this year.
... a cache of 1,000 kilograms (2,200 pounds) found 30 kilometers (20 miles) east of Gaza was to be smuggled across the border. A second cache of 400 kilograms (882 pounds) found east of the Suez Canal city of Ismailiya appeared to be for Egyptian militants.
...
The TNT appeared to be of the same kind that was used by militants in terror attacks on Sinai beach resorts, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity as he was not authorized to talk to the media.
