French police ‘lose’ explosives at Marseille airport

Sniffer dogs fail to find explosives during training exercise and gendarmes apparently forget where they hid them.

French gendarmes in Marseille face being disciplined after reportedly “losing” explosives during a training exercise.

The officers were believed to have hidden the 100g block C-4 plastic explosive – known to experts as a form of Composition C – in the freight section at the city airport for their sniffer dogs to find.

However, the sniffer dogs failed to find the explosives and the gendarmes apparently forgot where they had hidden them.
