Slovak man takes hidden explosive on Dublin flight

DUBLIN (AP) - Irish authorities say a Slovak man unwittingly carried hidden explosives on board a weekend flight to Dublin after a Slovakian airport-security test went awry.
The 49-year-old electrician was arrested Tuesday, but released without charge after Slovak security officials alerted their Dublin counterparts to the screw-up.
Officials had surreptitiously placed different bomb components in the check-in luggage of nine passengers to see if security screeners would spot the contraband. The bag containing 90 hidden grams (3 ounces) of plastic explosive got through—and then wasn't stopped from traveling to Dublin.
Irish Army explosives experts stressed the explosive posed no threat to passengers because it was stable and not connected to other essential bomb parts.
1. The Irish were the ones receiving the passenger with the bombs.
2. Slovakians, not Irish, were the ones testing with bombs in bags.
3. Irish security, like any other competent airport security in the world, discovered the bombs (not the stupid Slovakians who initiated the test in the first place), and then examined them for dismantling and found that the bombs were stable because they didn't have all the parts necessary to work correctly.
