Turkey blocks an EU mission inspection of a cargo vessel travelling to Libya

By Matthew Holroyd with AFP

Turkey has blocked a German military vessel from inspecting a cargo ship suspected of carrying weapons on its way to Libya.

On Sunday evening, the German frigate Hamburg stopped the Turkish-flagged cargo ship, Roseline A, as part of a European Union mission called Operation Irini. But the search had to be abandoned after Ankara protested and denied permission for the vessel to be probed.
