Romanian freighter Sea Soul 1 sunk by crew trying to destroy illegal arms shipment

Egyptian crew of a general cargo vessel Sea Soul 1 on Aug 12 sunk the vessel to avoid prosecution for an attempt to smuggle 40 containers laden with arms and ammunition into Mali, on Dakar road, Senegal. Senegalese Navy found arms on Aug 8, but authorities made a mistake of anchoring her at the road, not docking her on arrival and offloading illegal arms. Two containers reportedly, disappeared, so maybe part of arms shipment will reach its’ destination. According to databases, vessel is owned and operated by a Romanian company.
