The Sydney Morning Herald reported on the development, with DHL spokeswoman Bea Garcia explaining that no explosives had been found: “As part of our standard screening and security procedure, we identified a shipment today at DHL’s Cairo airport facility that required further screening by the authorities.
“The Egyptian authorities have subsequently informed us that the shipment contained no explosives or explosive devices.”
Egyptian officials have been on high alert since a bomb reportedly brought down a Russian plane that crashed in the Sinai desert last month. Security services revealed a plot to explode toner cartridges filled with explosive material in 2011.
