A Sudanese man was arrested in London today for possession of ammunition. The man arrived in London on a Virginia Atlantic flight originating from
Washington DC. Details on how the man was able to slip past security checks are not available at this time. The type and amount of ammunition are
also currently not being disclosed.
The 45-year-old man had arrived on a Virgin Atlantic flight from Washington D.C. and was in transit, a spokesman for London's Metropolitan Police
said. He was arrested under Section 1 of the Firearms Act after passing through a security check, the spokesman said. He did not describe the
suspected ammunition but said it was undergoing forensic tests.
With heightened security in the USA the question remains how did the man get past security checks in Washington DC.
