Egypt Releases Seized Ship

Egypt released, over the weekend, a ship that its soldiers seized on Wednesday in the Red Sea, after it was found to be carrying weapons and ammunition.

A senior Egyptian source said the ship was released after it was confirmed that the vessel belonged to an international company which deals in securing ocean-going vessels and that the weapons and ammunition were intended for the security company's missions.
