Has anyone seen this reported anywhere else?
It does bring up a couple of immediate thoughts:
1. How the hell can explosives be stolen from a rail shipment? Surely armaments are guarded while being transported?
2. Why would the MoD be sending anti-tank mines to Afghanistan? Last time I checked, the Taliban didn't have any mechanised warfare capability.
If this story is indeed accurate, I find it rather worrying and wonder just where these mines will end up and what they will be used for, possibly on
the domestic front. I don't buy into it being a possible theft of opportunity by anyone looking for easily shifted goods to be sold on for cash.
Have to keep any eye out for any follow-up or story from the UK press.
