    MOSCOW, January 19 (RIA Novosti) - Police in southeast Moscow have discovered around 100 kilograms (220 pounds) of explosives stashed in a deserted building, a police spokesman said on Saturday.

    The tetryl, a solid yellow explosive compound used to make detonators, was found in a deserted outhouse near a gardening club in the capital's Shchyolkovsky District.

    Police found "40 metal pipe off-cuts that were previously part of an elongated mine clearing charge, with about 100 kilograms of tetryl inside," the spokesman said.

    Police believe the tetryl was put there by a local resident previously arrested for possession of explosives.
