Turkey Probes Report of Guns in Biscuit Boxes, Anatolia Says

Nov. 5 (Bloomberg) -- Turkey has started an investigation into the reported discovery of hand guns in biscuit boxes sent by a Turkish firm to Yemen, Anatolia news agency said today, citing Customs and Trade Minister Hayati Yazici.

The investigation began after Yemen’s foreign ministry notified Turkey about the discovery, Anatolia said. Yazici did not say how many guns were discovered, Anatolia said.

The boxes were loaded on a ship at the Mediterranean customs point of Mersin, the agency said. Yazici said the carrier was also a Turkish firm. He did not give names of the exporter and carrier companies.
