Update- Arctic Sea saga

This is getting very interesting. I doubt we will ever find out the true story.

From Reuters

The official version of events was questioned by Yulia Latynina, a leading Russian opposition journalist and commentator.

"The Arctic Sea was carrying something, not timber and not from Finland, that necessitated some major work on the ship," she wrote in the Moscow Times newspaper on Wednesday.

During two weeks of repair works in the Russian port of Kaliningrad just before the voyage, the ship's bulkhead was dismantled so something very large could be loaded, she wrote.

"To put it plainly: The Arctic Sea was carrying some sort of anti-aircraft or nuclear contraption intended for a nice, peaceful country like Syria, and they were caught with it," she said.

I've heard rumours that the vessel was carrying weapons from Russia to Iran, and that the 'pirates' were recruited by the Mossad (Israeli secret service) to interrupt the trade.
