Explosives Found




VLADIVOSTOK, Far East -- A cache of explosives has been found in a wooded area in the Far East, security officials said Thursday.


More than 150 dynamite charges, 17 grenades and other explosives were found hidden in the woods 50 kilometers away from Vladivostok, Federal Security Service officials said.


The discovery was made as part of an all-Russia anti-terrorism operation code-named Whirlwind, they said. Authorities are seeking to find out who the explosives belonged to.
