Greek authorities say they have impounded a Tanzanian-flagged freighter and arrested its crew, including five Indians, for allegedly carrying explosives to Libya in breach of an international ban.
It was found to be carrying 29 shipping containers of explosives and detonators, which according to the ship's papers had been loaded in Turkey and were destined for the east African port of Djibouti.
However, a ministry statement Wednesday said the ship's owner later ordered the captain to change course and take the cargo to the Libyan port of Misrata.
The arrested crew members were identified as five Indians, two Ukrainians and an Albanian.
