BELFAST, Northern Ireland (AP) — An anti-war theater troupe traveling from Northern Ireland to Bosnia says four of its members were arrested at a Belfast airport after security officials found bullets inside a costume.
The cast and crew of "The Conquest of Happiness" were trying to fly to Sarajevo for a performance of their anti-war play when security officers detected 12 live rounds sewn into a denim jacket used by an actor who portrays a war correspondent.
Show co-creator Emma Jordan says they were released Wednesday without charge after explaining they had bought the jacket on the Internet and didn't realize it was decorated with real bullets.
"The Conquest of Happiness" dramatizes bloodshed from the Middle East, Vietnam, Northern Ireland, Cambodia, Chile and Bosnia. It includes readings from the work of pacifist philosopher Bertrand Russell.
