Missing Cargo Ship Arctic Sea Found
Russian navy has found the cargo ship Arctic Sea that went missing on July 30th. The crew is alive and unharmed, and have boarded a Russian anti-submarine ship, according to Russia's defence minister Anatoly Serdyukov . The Arctic Sea was found 300 miles from Cape Verde in the Atlantic Ocean.
Serdyukov said that the navy was now going to focus on finding out why the vessel disappeared off radar. Some theories suggest the ship was hijacked, others that the ship was involved in a commercial quarrel. More information will be available later on Monday, as crew are questioned.
Carrying timber reportedly worth $1.8m (£1.1m), the 4,000-tonne Maltese-flagged vessel sailed from Finland and had been scheduled to dock in the Algerian port of Bejaia on 4 August.
