A Chinese ship carrying arms to Zimbabwe that was turned away from South Africa is heading to Angola in hopes of docking there, the transport minister of Mozambique said yesterday.
The ship left South African waters on Friday after a court refused to allow the weapons to be transported across South Africa, SAPA news agency said.
Mozambique's transport and communications minister, Paulo Zucula, told Reuters Mozambique has been monitoring the movements of the ship since it left South Africa.
