ZAGREB, Croatia (AP) — Croatian authorities say they have seized large quantities of illegal military equipment, including rocket launchers and anti-aircraft rockets, found in a shipment from Serbia.

Police and customs officials said Friday the weapons were found in a container at a customs terminal in the northern port of Rijeka. Croatian authorities gave no other details.

In neighboring Serbia, the state intelligence agency said they tipped off the Croat authorities about a week ago of the suspicious shipment, which originated in Italy. It said the seizure was the result of international cooperation.

Croatian media have reported that the weapons were bound for Abu Dhabi or Sudan.
