An unspecified amount of explosives has gone missing from an armory in northern Switzerland. There’s no telling how long it will take for the other shoe to drop on this one, and we may never know when it finally does.
Many thanks to Ava Lon for translating this brief article from the Swiss regional daily 24 heures:
Army: several kilos of explosives disappeared
Recruits’ school. Officials made the discovery during an inventory of ammunition boxes in an infantry school in Aarau. An investigation has been opened.
During an inspection of ammunition made last week [the first week of September] at the infantry school in Long Service 14 (in mil ER SL 14) Aarau, officials have discovered what are probably missing explosives. An investigation was opened immediately, as announced by the Federal Department of Defence, Protection of the Population and Sports in a terse statement.
Military justice is investigating an alleged loss of several kilograms of explosives. “This kind of case is extremely rare,” said Daniel Reist, a spokesman for the army.
He could specify neither the nature of the explosives nor the exact amount that was stolen. There was no information on any leads; “the investigation has just begun.” For now, no warning to the population has been issued.
