Somalia: That Iranian Ship

For a couple of weeks now, I've noted some controversy about the Iranian ship captured by Somali pirates (see here and here)

Now the Long War Journal continues the story with Mystery surrounds hijacked Iranian ship:
Hijacked late last month in the Gulf of Aden, the MV Iran Deyanat remains moored offshore in Somali waters and inaccessible for inspection. Its declared cargo consists of minerals and industrial products, however, Somali and regional officials directly involved in the negotiations over the ship and who spoke to The Long War Journal are convinced that it was heading to Eritrea to deliver small arms and chemical weapons to Somalia's Islamist insurgents.
Read the post, it is interesting...
