Egypt: Suspect in Importing Spying Planes Remanded in Custody

The military prosecution in Suez remanded a suspect, who is a customs officer accused of attempting to smuggle spying planes into Egypt, in custody for four days pending investigations.

It also ordered to arrest a director of an import company who tried smuggling such illegal planes.

Security forces at Ain Sukhna Port managed to seize a shipped container from China, containing planes which are used in terrorist acts.

The case was referred to the military prosecution.
