TUNIS, Tunisia (AP) - Tunisian security forces have arrested two people carrying automatic weapons and explosives near the Algerian border.

The government has expressed concern in recent weeks that the weapons trafficked out of Libya after its uprising could make their way to Tunisia through neighboring Algeria.

The official news agency TAP reported Saturday that the men arrested had links with ultraconservative Salafi Muslims and were carrying maps of the region and military camouflage.

The Interior Ministry said it had opened an investigation.
