Three guns - an AK47 assault rifle, a shotgun and a pistol - were found abandoned in Macau's Outer Harbour district early yesterday.

The guns were wrapped in plastic shopping bags and placed on the pavement outside the International Centre at Outer Harbour, near the Security Police Immigration Department and close to the new Chinese Foreign Ministry Macau Office Building due to open soon.

Police were told the weapons had been found at 2am. All the guns were disassembled and some parts were missing. Disposal experts and dogs made a two-hour search of the area.
