Uh-oh: Over 60 pounds of Semtex stolen in France

Some 28Kg (61.6 pounds) of Semtex, a powerful explosive, has been apparently stolen from a storage facility in France.
Enough Semtex to make 56 bombs the size of the one used in the 1988 Lockerbie bombing has been stolen from a French castle.

The 28 kilograms of the explosive were discovered to be missing yesterday along with an unknown quantity of detonators, but the Interior Ministry said they could have been taken more than a week ago.
Your words of wisdom for the day: Keep away from mass transit in France for a while.
