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.

Reminds me of the Japanese authorities doing a similar drugs detection exercise. The Japanese failed to detect the drugs on the way out, but the poor sap whose luggage was chosen for the exercise was busted for drug possession/smuggling on the way in to Hong Kong.
