UK - Customs 'investigating WMD case'

Customs!! Customs!! According to the BBC customs is investigating a case of weapons of mass destruction. I sure as hell hope there's more than customs involved.

Pressed by the former Conservative defence minister, Sir John Stanley, Mr Fuchter confirmed that the investigation involved components or materials related to weapons of mass destruction.

Sir John said the case was "clearly of profound significance" and he wasn't aware that it had previously appeared in the public domain.

Was it?

This story raises more questions than it answers. You know, the usual journalistic basics like, who, what, why, where, when, etc. Take this one paragraph for instance.

It would be the first case using new powers imposing penalties on British nationals for some offences committed abroad that involve trafficking in torture equipment or long-range missiles.
