French police ‘lose’ explosives at Marseille airport
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.
