One-ton bomb unearthed at Turkish customs gate to Iran

Citizens and customs officials managed to prevent a terror attack at Turkey’s Gürbulak customs gate to Iran, after noticing a cable under the ground that turned out to be part of a bomb mechanism tied to one ton of explosives. 

Customs and Trade Minister Bülent Tüfekçi said on July 14 that the border gate in the eastern province of Ağrı was reopened after the mechanism was dismantled. 

Acting upon a notice by citizens, gendarmerie units in the province first closed the gate in both directions and inspected the area, finding a mechanism tied to two hidden propane cylinders.
