Israel Sends Weapons Ship on its Way

The weapons ship Klos C, seized by Israel last week off the coast of Sudan, left Israel's southernmost port of Eilat on Tuesday morning.

On Monday, Israel displayed the 80 rockets, 181 mortar shells and 400,000 armor-piercing bullets which constituted the reason for the vessel being seized. Iran and Hamas have denied any connection with the boat. Egypt said the arms may have been intended for insurgents in the Sinai Peninsula.
