09:32, December 27, 2011

CAIRO, Dec. 26 (Xinhua) -- Egypt's Attorney General Abdel- Meguid Mahmoud ordered a Ukrainian and two Israeli nationals to be tried at the Supreme State Security Emergency Court over smuggling firearms into Egypt, state media reported on Monday.

Investigations showed one of the Israelis was arrested while crossing the Taba border terminal from Israel into Egypt, carrying weapons and ammunition in a wooden case, official MENA news agency said.

An automatic rifle and 59 bullets were found when the wooden structure was placed on the scanning machine.

The Ukrainian national, manager of a tourist company in Egypt's Red Sea resort of Sharm El-Sheikh, had asked the other Israeli to send him some weapons, it added.

The Ukrainian and the Israeli national who transported the weapons were under custody in Egypt, but the other Israeli national remains fugitive.
