Thor Liberty detained in Germany

The ship carrying missiles bound for South Korea that was detained in Finland over Christmas has run into more problems at the port of Kiel in Germany. The ship's crew is once again facing questions over secure storage of its cargo.

A representative of Kiel police told local media that they are inspecting the explosives in containers onboard. The same issue caused a lengthy inspection and re-loading operation at Kotka harbour. It is not yet known when the ship will be able to leave Kiel.

The vessel will not be allowed to leave Germany until the inspection is complete, according to a report on a local German radio station’s website.
