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.

Ammunition? Big f**king deal! I suppose we best get our own form of patriot act quick, before those bad men start throwing bullets at us.

I have to laugh about this one, too. With the US going on and on about the lax security in all these foriegn airports, a man flies from a us airport carrying ammo.

The "bif f**cking deal" is that A: He managed to bypass what are (supposedly) the most stringent US security procedures EVER, and B, next time it may not just be bullets. A firearm can be taken apart into small pieces.
The 'bif f**cking deal' is that he managed this atall in the current climate.
