Montenegrin police seize truckload of weapons


PODGORICA, Serbia-Montenegro -- Police seized a truckload of weapons in Bioce, a town near Podgorica, local media reported on Thursday (9 March). Some reports suggest the material was headed to the Middle East, others suggest Albania. Serbia-Montenegro Army Chief of Staff General Ljubisa Jokic confirmed that the weapons were confiscated, but stressed that the transaction by the Jugoimport-Mont company, a mediator in arms sales, was legal. Another official said that while the necessary paperwork was issued, the problem arose when the company changed the vehicle and personnel transporting the weapons.
