"TNT explosives? I'm just going fishing!"

"TNT explosives? I'm just going fishing!"
A woman has been detained in Moscow for possession of TNT explosives. She says the dangerous cargo was intended for sale to fishermen.

Earlier reports suggested the 30 year old had 144 grams of plastic explosives, containing 85% of RDX by weight, according to the RIA Novosti news agency.

A police source confirmed that the woman has a criminal record. She came to one of Moscow’s parks to sell the explosives to fishermen, but they refused to buy it and instead called the police.

Moscow police received a number of portable explosive detectors after the terrorist attack at Domodedovo Airport in January, but several tests resulted in false alarms.
