Air Force accused of sneaking guns, spy equipment into Argentina

The government of Argentina has accused the U.S. Air Force of trying to sneak guns and spy equipment into that country.

Argentine authorities say they’ve seized nearly one thousand cubic feet of undeclared guns, GPS devices and other equipment.

The materials arrived on an Air Force cargo plane. And the U.S. government says they were for a routine police training course for Argentina’s federal police.

The course has been cancelled.
