Pensioners caught with arms

A group of pensioners have been caught making an arsenal of weapons, including rifles and machine guns.

Police investigators say the weapons were being turned out in a private firm in the town of Hodruša Hámre in central Slovakia.

Seven people are accused of the illegal manufacture and repair of weapons. The pensioners were believed to be selling the arms to "other people from various parts of the country".

"These people understood very well how to make weapons and some things they could do with their eyes closed," said the head of the investigation team, Milan Mokrý.
