During the night of 19 to 20 February 1988, two Libyan citizens and one Senegalese man were arrested upon their arrival at Dakar airport, Senegal.
An “anonymous caller” had warned the Authorities that the three men were carrying weapons and explosives in their luggage.
The anonymous caller was right about the weapons and explosives. Furthermore, they were carrying with them one boxed MST-13 timer.
The story of the Togo timer was weird and murky. But the story of the Senegal timer is out of a “serialized novel”.
