Bucharest: Authorities say they are
investigating the theft of 64 missile warheads from a train
transporting military equipment to Bulgaria.

Interior ministry spokesman Marius Militaru said
yesterday the components are not dangerous on their own only
when integrated into missile systems. Prosecutors said today
they are investigating the theft.

Railway workers on Saturday noticed the seals on a
carriage door were broken, and it was not properly closed when
the train reached Giurgiu, a Danube port that borders
Bulgaria.

Tohan Zarnesti, the Romanian company that was shipping
the warheads, produces artillery ammunition, ground to ground
missiles and air to ground missiles and warheads for 122mm
missiles.
