Prosecutor: Students Had Explosives

Prosecutor: Students Had Explosives

TAMPA, Fla. -- A federal prosecutor disputes defense claims that two Egyptian college students arrested near a South Carolina Navy weapons station were carrying harmless fireworks and not dangerous explosives.

An attorney for Youssef Samir Megahed filed a motion last week asking a judge to reconsider granting bail. He cited an FBI report that characterized the items found in the trunk of the car as a pyrotechnic mixture that burned but didn't explode when tested.

  1. why would they even have explosives in the first place? DO you think the judge should consider bail? because im not sure i do. I believe everyone should have a chance of freedom but do you think THEY knew that they weren't harmless? What if they didn't know and were trying to do something destructive?
