Mystery Surrounding 'Atlantic Cruiser' Ends German Freight Ship Wasn't Carrying Weapons for Syria

After several days of inspections, Turkish authorities have informed government officials in Berlin that the German freight ship Atlantic Cruiser, is not carrying weapons bound for Syria after all. The ship's cargo is legal, and its loading papers have been correctly presented, officials say.
The inspection of the Atlantic Cruiser freighter in the Turkish port of Iskenderun did not turn up the weapons Syrian rebels claimed might be on board.
