Singapore Airport Security Seizes Submachine Gun

Singapore Airport Security Seizes Submachine Gun From Libyan Bodyguard

Quote:
Security officials at Singapore's international airport seized a submachine gun and five clips of ammunition from a bodyguard traveling with Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi's son, police said Friday.

The seizure took place during routine security checks as Abousbeiha Hussein Azzaydi prepared to board a flight to Bangkok last Saturday, police said in a news release.

A pistol, revolver and a knife also were taken from Azzaydi, a bodyguard for Gadhafi's son, Saadi M. Gadhafi, 28, the news release said.
This is why my bodyguards always carry chainsaws, except when I fly through ATL

The US is a real exception -- most leaders fly commecially. I would expect that their families aren't treated any better.
