Two Containers with 10 Kilos of Explosives Float Into Israeli Beaches Ashkelon and Ashdown

Ashkelon and Ashdown, twin Israeli ports up to 25 kilometers north of Gaza, were evacuated Monday, February 1, 2010 as a precaution after two large containers packed with explosives (possibly floating bombs) beached ashore. Authorities are investigating whether the containers are failed bombs or misguided shipments of explosives from Iran to Palestinian surrogates.
