Los Angeles Times - - The World -

Ital­ian au­thor­i­ties have seized a “huge” ship­ment of pow­er­ful RDX ex­plo­sives that may have orig­i­nated in Iran, po­lice said. The ex­plo­sives were seized Tues­day from the con­tainer ship Fin­land that docked in Gioia Tauro, a port in south­ern Cal­abria.

Reg­gio Cal­abria Po­lice Chief Carmelo Casabona told Italy’s pri­vate Sky 24 tele­vi­sion news that the amount was too big to be des­tined only to the Cal­abrian mob.
