Gun Smugglers Busted

MOSCOW () -- The Russian coast guard seized a Russian trawler bound for South Korea on Wednesday with a load of stolen submachine guns, Itar-Tass said.


Aboard were 40 Kalashnikovs stolen from a military unit in the Khabarovsk region in the Far East.


The agency said the captain and crew said they were smuggling the weapons to South Korea. The captain also said he ordered the crew to toss guns overboard when the coast guard approached.
