Estonian report says ferry that sank in 1994 might be carrying weapons
It says weaponry that Estonian officials knew nothing about might have been loaded into the ferryboat’s holds.
Apprehensions of exposure of the cargo might have prompted someone to get rid of it by throwing it overboard, and this was exactly what led to a disaster on the stormy night, Feniks experts surmised.
" An explosion on board the ferry can be ruled out , based on the findings of the commission," Estonian Justice Minister Rein Lang told reporters.
Explosion ruled out
May 10, 2007
A new Swedish-German expert group on the 1994 M/S Estonia catastrophe does not exclude an explosion as cause of the shipwreck.
The catastrophe occurred little over a month after the last Russian troops had left Estonian soil. It thus came at an inconvenient moment for Estonia, as the country had just regained full sovereignty over its territory. Consequently, the stage was set for widespread speculations and conspiracy theories.

By the way, is any of his footage from his and Jutta Rabe’s 2000 expedition available to the general public?
All the best.
