Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Danish public broadcasting reports that a large weapons cache has been uncovered in the hands of "Danish-Bosnian" criminals. Preliminary reports speak of AK47s, submachine guns and other Really Nasty Things among the confiscated contraband.

This follows a heist earlier this year where a military base was robbed of a carload of "around 200 military-grade firearms" - which can mean anything from carbines to light machine guns.

No word so far on whether the two are related.

A little caution is advised, of course, in taking the police reports as gospel regarding the nationality of the criminals; Danish police has in the past displayed a certain - ah - flexibility when it comes to grabbing brown people and chucking some charges at them in the hope that something sticks.
