2699 pieces of ammunition (cartridges, projectiles and a bullet press) were discovered in the checked-in luggage of an Iranian man at Varna airport. The ammunition was seized by Bulgarian customs officials. The Iranian national was traveling as a tourist on a charter flight to Iran on September 15. At the airport in Varna, he passed through the corridor of passengers who have nothing to declare. The ammunition was discovered after a thorough check of his luggage.

The seized goods are not under special control under the Arms, Ammunition and Explosives Act, but due to their commercial quantity the undeclared parts were confiscated, customs officials said.
