Greece searching ship suspected of carrying arms from North Korea to Syria

On Tuesday, Greek officials searched a French-owned, German-flagged ship that was sailing from North Korea to Syria. The ship was suspected of carrying weapons.
According to the report the official claimed "we have opened four containers so far and have found non-military material that could have a dual use."

An official with links to the operation said the Greek authorities had received information that the ship was carrying weapons and missiles.

The official, who also refused to be named, confirmed that as this point no missiles or weapons had been found.

The UN Security Council agreed last June to ban the export of all weapons by North Korea.
