GunslingersMORE than 800 military weapons have been seized at Algeciras port.

A total of 737 assault rifles and 72 rocket launchers were intercepted by the Guardia Civil during a routine container check.

The weapons, believed to be Swiss made, arrived in Algeciras on a container from Ghana and were due to be shipped to the US.

The news of the seizure comes just a day after it was announced that 350 kilos of cocaine had been found at the port.
