Cargo vessel detained on Rhodes sinks due to bad weather
Nour M, a cargo boat detained at the port of Rhodes, sank on Wednesday due to strong winds blowing in the area.
The Sierra-Leone flagged vessel had been detained on the Dodecanese island after coast guards and customs officials had detected thousands of bullets onboard last month.
The vessel’s automatic identification system had shown Greek authorities that Nour M’s captain had entered Syria as his final destination but had changed it to Tripoli, Libya, when he was stopped by the Greek coast guard.
Officers believe the cargo ship was linked to the so-called “Odessa Network”, which has been described as a loose collection of logistics contractors operating for Russian and Ukrainian governments in order to get weapons to foreign regimes, including that of Syria’s Bashar Al Assad.
Initial reports suggeseted that the vessel sank along with its cargo.
