Finland halts tank parts from Russia to Syria

Published: 02.15.13, 21:02 / Israel News

Finnish customs says it has intercepted a shipment of tank spare parts en route to Syria from Russia, suspecting it was in breach of a European Union ban on weapons exports to the war-torn country.

 

Lounatmaa on Friday not give details because of an ongoing investigation but said that it appeared to "involve a commercial transport from Russia to Syria." He said they were working with several international authorities but gave no details. Three captains and a first mate of the ship were questioned but had been released. The ship also was given permission to sail. (AP)
