Egypt's Navy Intercepts Arms Shipment Coming from Israel

Officials say it was en route to Togo, but strayed into their waters


Egypt's navy on Thursday seized a weapons-laden ship and detained its crew who had set off from the Israeli port of Eilat en route to the African country of Togo, security officials said.

Officials said the navy intercepted the ship, "which was flying the flag of an African country," after it strayed into Egyptian territorial waters.
