Police still searching for explosives missing from La Línea house

Flat in San Roque linked to the two Chechnyan men arrested in Ciudad Real · RGP helps search of Turk's workplace
LA LÍNEA (Agencies) The National Police are still searching for explosives that were missing from the flat where one alleged Al-Qaeda terrorist was arrested yesterday. Their search of the house yesterday, with trained K-9 units, only revealed traces of the explosives, but the police are convinced that they will find a great deal more. The alert came from the dogs, who reacted very nervously even though the house was almost empty of explosives; the home had evidently been cleaned shortly before it was raided. A flat in San Roque was also raided on Thursday, believed to be where the two men from Chechnya -one of whom is a deserter from Russian special forces- had supposedly been living. In Gibraltar, the RGP, together with the Spanish National Police, searched the workplace of the other member of the Al-Qaeda cell, a Turkish national. No arms or explosives were found at either place, but documents and computer information were taken to be analysed.
