Police searching a bus that arrived in Istanbul on Monday night found five hand bombs, TNT molds and ammunition for long-barreled Kalashnikov rifles, Today's Zaman reported.
According to information obtained thus far, teams from the İstanbul Police's Anti-Terror Directorate were responding to a warning issued by an unnamed source when they searched the bus.
Police are currently investigating which illegal group the weapons and ammunition found on the bus may belong to and with anxiety running high due to the recent Ergenekon operation as well as violent events at Akdeniz University, security sources are reportedly trying to carry out their investigation as speedily as possible.
İstanbul Police Chief Celalettin Cerrah made only brief comments regarding the investigation: "Some hand bombs and ammunition were found inside a package. We are continuing in our investigations."
