stolen semtex explosives & detonators left unguardedfrom bbc: A depot in France from which a large quantity of powerful explosive went missing was poorly guarded, the regional head of security has said. The storage of 28kg (61lb) of Semtex at the site near Lyon was “not usual and certainly not authorised”, Xavier de Fuerst also told the AFP news agency. A search by anti-terrorist officers is under way, and the manager of the site has been suspended pending an inquiry. Semtex has been favoured by terrorists for being very difficult to detect.
