The weapons incorporated machine guns, rifles and guns, security authorities stated. The weapons showed up from London to Budapests Ferenc Liszt Airport terminal on Saturday and were found in a nearby duty free zone, Janos Hajdu, mind of Hungarys Counterterrorism Center, stated. He stated he couldn't confirm these were intended for the film. Its likely that the weapons were introduced set for the film, but this wouldn't be permitted by Hungarian law, because the weapons was not fully deactivated and may easily be employed to fire live ammunition, Hajdu stated on Neo Radio. This can be a very complicated situation. Hajdu stated the weapons have been shipped to some Hungarian company, whose representative had been asked by researchers. Hajdu described that in Hungary weapons were regarded as deactivated only when the procedure was irreversible, as the weapons grabbed could be fired despite the fact that screwshad been accustomed to fill the finish from the barrels. Adam Goodman, whose clients are supplying production services for World War Z, stated he'd been advised to not discuss links between your grabbed weapons and also the film. We're planning as planned. We're not altering our schedule, Goodman told The Connected Press. He added that media reviews declaring the film set have been raided by police to confiscate the weapons weren't true.
