More than 30,000 pistols seized in Oman transit

MUSCAT, Oman (AP) — Oman police say they have seized more than 30,000 pistols aboard a tanker, which a newspaper reports was bound for neighboring Yemen.

The seizure comes two years after an Abu Dhabi court sentenced six people for a foiled plot to smuggle 16,000 pistols from Turkey to Shiite rebels in northern Yemen.

The official Oman News Agency quoted a police colonel as saying nine Omanis were arrested in connection with the alleged shipment of 30,393 pistols discovered in Sohar, a port about 200 kilometers (120 miles) northwest of the capital Muscat. It gave no other details.

But the Dubai-based newspaper Gulf News cited anonymous sources Thursday as saying the vessel came from Turkey and was bound for Yemen, where Shiite rebels have waged an insurgency for years.

Too short to excerpt.

Before you bitch about the youth of today ... think about who raised them.
