Dynamite Seized




VLADIVOSTOK, Far East -- Police raided an apartment building in Vladivostok on Thursday and seized four dynamite charges and a detonator, the Emergency Situations Ministry said.


The charges, each weighing 200 grams, and one detonator were found after police in the Far Eastern port city stepped up their vigilance Tuesday fearing new terrorist acts by Chechen militants.


A bomb expert took the explosives to a military arsenal.


"It's a very dangerous symptom that such things lie around," said Vitaly Chernenko, a spokesman for the ministry.
