Irish Police Seize Explosives After Failed Slovak Security Test
Irish police seized explosives in Dublin today after Slovak authorities contacted them about a failed airport security exercise last weekend. Slovak authorities concealed the material in an airline passenger’s luggage without the man’s consent as he travelled to Dublin on Jan. 2, Ireland’s Justice Ministry said in an e-mailed statement. They contacted Irish airport police today to inform them about the explosives. The Slovak government has expressed "profound regret" for the incident, which Irish police are investigating, the ministry said.
