The Senegal Timer

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 caller was right.  Their luggage did indeed contain some TNT and SEMTEX-H explosives, a Beretta handgun with a silencer, a box of 25 bullets, a bunch of detonators and, last but not least, a boxed MST-13 timer.
