Egyptian Source: Maybe Klos C Arms Intended for Sinai

An Egyptian security source estimated, Sunday, that the rockets found aboard the Panamanian-registered ship Klos C, seized by Israel last week, were intended for anti-government terrorists operating in the Sinai Peninsula. The source said Egypt was also tracking the ship, which was sailing on a route off the coast of Africa frequented by vessels carrying illegal aliens.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon and Navy Commander Ram Rotenberg are scheduled to lead a display of the weapons that were seized. Joining international media in attendance will be ambassadors and military attaches. Netanyahu is expected to display documents and other evidence taken from the crew that tie the ship to Iran with the message not to trust the Tehran government during the talks about its nuclear development program.
