Iranian ship carried arms

Brussels - An Iranian ship that docked recently in Belgium carried arms which could have been used in a terrorist attack in Germany, according to the Antwerp public prosecutor's office, Reuter reports.

Initially police described the 14 March find on board the Iran Kollahdooz as explosives but a closer investigation showed them to be a mortar bomb and launcher. They were destined for Munich, where police tightened security at Israeli premises and other possible targets after Antwerp customs officers found the "explosives" during a routine inspection of cargo.
