A ship from Novorossiysk was detained in the Tunisian port of Sfax. On its board military equipment was found. According to the Maritime Bulletin, the vessel Ural under the flag of Panama was heading for Cameroon and stopped in Tunisia for repairs. The ship's operator is a Turkish company.

During the inspection, Tunisia Customs found 24 containers with infantry fighting vehicles, bulldozers, military uniforms and satellite communications equipment on the ship. Now the crew is being checked for involvement in terrorism.

It is noted that suspicions were also caused by an atypical route of the ship: it crossed the Ionian Sea, which is not required on the way to Cameroon, and then went to the shores of Libya and headed to Sfax.
