Israel Denies Link to Ship Seized by Egypt


Israel's government strenuously denied on Friday that it had any link to an arms-laden ship that Egypt said its navy seized as it sailed from the Israeli port of Eilat to Togo in West Africa, according to Agence France Presse.

Foreign ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor told AFP, "Nobody in Israel knows anything about this ship. It's clear that it did not come from Eilat or any other Israeli port." He also said, "We cannot understand why anyone should tell stories which can easily be proved to have no basis in fact."
