Turkey, Ankara: discovery of "munitions-laden truck"

13-03-2010 09:52

Ankara: TSK vehicle carrying explosives
Questions persist after discovery of munitions-laden truck in Ankara ... Stopping a truck in Ümitköy on Wednesday, Ankara police discovered that the truck was filled with munitions. ... A munitions-filled truck discovered in Ankara late on Wednesday turned out to be carrying weapons and hand grenades belonging to the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) to a military facility in the Turkish capital, but questions still linger over why the armed forces ordered the transfer of explosives in a civilian vehicle and without any security escort for protection. Late on Wednesday, Ankara police stopped a truck in Ümitköy upon receipt of an e-mail from an unidentified individual. A search of the vehicle showed that it was filled with weapons and hand grenades. The driver told the police he was taking the munitions to the Special Forces Command in Gölbasi. He also showed documentation indicating that the truck had been hired by the TSK. According to the driver, the explosives were being taken to the military facility in a civilian vehicle for security reasons. A noncommissioned officer and a corporal in civilian attire were also in the truck.
