Bahraini sleuths hunt for RDX source

Saudi and Bahraini security agencies have launched a thorough probe following the recovery of highly explosive material from a car at the King Fahd Causeway on Friday. The seizure and arrests of an unspecified number of suspects indicate a diabolic plan by terrorists to strike at facilities in the Kingdom.
The material seized by the Saudi customs department included the deadly RDX, which is generally used by terrorists across the world to cause heavy casualties and widespread destruction of property, and specials fuses to detonate bombs.
Public Security chief of Bahrain, Lt. General Tareq Al-Hassan, on Saturday said the Bahraini security forces are striving to dig up details about the source of the explosives and the kingpins behind it.
“The security forces of both the countries are working in tandem to hunt for the parties involved in this act of terror and to gauge its dimension,” he said in a press statement.
Al-Hassan said that the two countries have reached a high level of cooperation and achieved success in a number of complicated security operations,
The Bahraini security official said the region is exposed to several security related events “that make us conscious of the truth of the hazards surrounding us, which threatens our security and stability; which call for collective and joint stance with increased cooperation and coordination between security departments in the countries in the region and the friendly countries in order to counter the threats.”
