Johannesburg - Four men were arrested for allegedly being in possession of explosives and illegal firearms in Linden, Johannesburg, police said on Sunday.

Captain Pinky Tsinyane said the men, aged between 27 and 53, were arrested near a shopping complex on Friday.

Tsinyane said two of the men went into a shop while the other two waited in the car.

Police saw the car had no number plate and searched the vehicle. They found the explosives and later found two unlicensed firearms on the other two men.

The men were expected to appear at the Randburg Magistrate's Court on Monday.

    This is where I regain my confidence in the police - congratulations to the vigilant police! Credit where credit is due. You probably averted another ATM bombing and the possible loss of lives in the process! Thank you :-) Please continue with the good work and set the example to the rest of your crew and at the same time make examples of these thugs the you are not taking the CR..P from these criminals anymore! They are tainting our country and making a joke of the judiciary system by thinking that they can allways get away with murder!

    The mining industry must take the blame for this. Seemingly it's far too easy for their employees to walk out with explosives from these mines. What's worse is that these people have been trained, and so they know exactly what they are doing when they bomb these ATMS.

      Wake up..the government is to blame for allowing this and for not assisting business to create jobs, nor to keep population numbers under control.
