Ship carrying weapons seized in Yemeni waters
[29/January/2013]

SANA’A, Jan.29 (Saba)- Interior Ministry said that the Yemeni Coast Guard forces in cooperation with the U.S. Navy intercepted Wednesday a ship carrying weapons illegally entered Yemeni territorial waters in the Arab Sea.

An official source at the Interior Ministry told Saba that a team of the Yemeni Coast Guard and security forces, during boarding of the vessel, found a quantity of explosives and weapons.

The source explained that the weapons found on board of the seized ship includes land-to-air missiles, which are carried on shoulder and used to bring down military and civilian aircraft, and C-4 explosives, 122 cm shells, and RPG shells, as well as equipments used for manufacturing of explosives locally, such as electronically-explosive capsules, which all are used in manufacturing of car bombs and timely-blasting.

The investigation is underway with the ship's crew, consisting of eight Yemeni sailors, to find out the source and destination of those weapons, the source added.
