Greece: Seized ship carrying explosives headed to Sudan
Greece has impounded a ship that reportedly wandered the Mediterranean for six weeks, carrying 750 tons of TNT. The Comoros-flagged ship "Baltic Sky" was intercepted Sunday when it entered Greek territorial waters.
According to AP, Greek authorities have been tracking the ship since May 12th, when it apparently picked up the explosives in Tunisia.
The ship's logs claim the explosives were headed for a company in Sudan but Greek officials contend the address is only a post office box.
Greek Shipping Minister George Anomeritis said on Monday "The cargo was destined for a company with a post office box in Khartoum does not exist." (Albawaba.com)
