Explosives ship seized by Greece was heading for Sudan


AFP/Yahoo News reports that this ship seized Sunday in Greek waters, carrying 680 tons of explosives, was on its way to Sudan.

Loaded in Tunisia, the cargo ship flew the flag of the Comoros Islands in Africa, "had yo-yoed around the Mediterranean during May and June," and was addressed to a non-existent chemicals firm at, get this, a post office box, in Khartoum.

Greater minds than my own have posed the question of how this shipment was expected to fit into a post office box.
