US$134 billion in bonds

Make of this what you will, folks:

Two Japanese were detained by Italian financial police last week after trying to enter Switzerland with $134 billion worth of undeclared U.S. bonds, mostly Treasury bonds, an Italian newspaper reported Wednesday.

Real? Forgeries? and found in a suitcase with a false bottom?

Oh, brother. These guys make the "Venezuelan Briefcase" affair look like pocket change.
