    Cypriot authorities on Friday started to unload weapons from a detained ship which breached a UN ban on Iranian arms exports.

    A government statement said the cargo, which it did not identify, would be stored on the island. State CyBC radio said containers were being transported to a naval base under police and military guard.

    The Cypriot-flagged Monchegorsk has anchored off the port of Limassol since it arrived Jan. 29 under suspicion from US officials of ferrying weapons from Iran to Hamas terrorists in Gaza.

    The US military said it found artillery shells and other arms aboard the ship after stopping it last month in the Red Sea. Iran denies the ship contains weapons.

    On Wednesday, Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman denied reports that the ship was carrying Iranian weapons destined for the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip. Spokesman Hassan Qashqavi said that Cypriot authorities had inquired about the ship's cargo but accusations that weapons were on board were baseless.

    Cypriot Foreign Minister Markos Kyprianou said Tuesday that the ship had breached a UN ban on Iranian arms exports but refused to specify what had been found on the Cypriot-flagged Monchegorsk.

    Perhaps, instead of the assumed accusation and full blown innuendo you provide a source that actually LISTS what "weapons" were found on board so that we know that you are not acting in typical zionist fashion and labeling reams of fucking textbook paper as "Palestinean Weapons and Reasons to Kill Off Some More Arabs"?

    "A ship suspected of transporting arms from Iran to Gaza has no weaponry aboard but is carrying material that can be used to make munitions, authorities in Cyprus said."
