A man in Papua New Guinea was caught trying to transport an RPG launcher and nine grenades in his plane luggage.
The Australian reports:
A ROCKET launcher and nine grenades have been found in the luggage of a passenger on a flight in Papua New Guinea.
Police seized the weapon and ammunition after discovering them at the Mt Hagen airport in PNG’s Highlands region last Wednesday.
They also discovered a scope that is believed to be part of the rocket launcher.
PNG’s Highlands region is infamous for sometimes decades-long tribal fights.
I have held a deactivated RPG round. They are heavy! I would not want to try carrying nine of them in a suitcase without looking suspicious.
