It appears that they took advantage of someone’s Christmas Sale
The Finnish authorities have impounded an Isle of Man-flagged ship bound for China with undeclared missiles and explosives, officials say.
Police are questioning the crew of the MS Thor Liberty after what were described as 69 Patriot anti-missile missiles were found aboard.
Interior Minister Paivi Rasanen said the missiles were marked “fireworks”.
The MS Thor Liberty had docked in the Finnish port of Kotka after leaving Germany last week.
Dock workers became suspicious after finding explosives poorly stored on open pallets, and the missiles were then found in containers marked “fireworks”.
That sounds like my kind of “fireworks”. And my kind of Christmas sale!
I wonder what tipped them off? Did they find it odd that “fireworks” were head TO China instead of the other way around?
