Israel caught two Palestinians who tried to smuggle in small arms across the Dead Sea.

The suspects, both Bedouin from the West Bank, were arrested Monday while sailing in from Jordan with 10 assault rifles and ammunition in their boat. Israeli police said they had been under surveillance for several months.

The incident was a rare departure from the calm that generally reigns in the Dead Sea area thanks to Israeli-Jordanian security coordination.
