PR dla Zagranicy
Three Dutch citizens described as having 'Arab origins' have been detained after attempting to buy Kalashnikovs and a pistol in a shop in Gdynia, northern Poland.
The owner of the shop told the Dziennik Baltycki paper that the men did not have permits for the weapons.
When he declined to sell them the guns, they allegedly offered to pay double the asking price, in cash.
The shopowner refused and called the police, and the would-be customers departed.
The three were later detained in a local shopping centre.
Reportedly the men attempted to resist counter-terrorism police, and tasers were used.
Grażyna Wawryniuk, spokeswoman for the Prosecutor's Office in Gdańsk, has confirmed that three men have been detained, adding only that “procedures are being carried out.” (nh/pk)
