An Italian company has been identified as having deliveredweapons from North Korea to Iran. Italy's Otim said it shipped 10 containers from North Korea headed forthe Iranian port of Bandar Abbas via China. Executives said the company didnot know the contents of the containers, transported by the ANL-Australia. "The containers left Dalian [in China] untouched with the same seals puton at the origin," Otim chief executive Mario Carniglia said.

Well, when there's a blinding flash we will have known.
The seizure of the ANL Australia, which took place about a month ago, was the first made under the new sanctions.
The export of apparently conventional weapons to Iran might not have been a reason to hold the Australian-owned
vessel and confiscate its cargo, before the United Nations Security Council firmly imposed the sanctions on June 12.
The United Arab Emirates is now asking the sanctions committee of the UN Security Council what to do with the weapon-laden
cargo of the ANL Australia which was carried in crates marked as machinery parts when the vessel was boarded at Dubai.

1 container ship being stopped doesnt mean a thing.
