A huge cache of 2,000 guns was found on a fishing boat by the Australian Navy. It is believed the Somalia-bound dinghy could be part of major illegal arms trade, meant to supply arms to the war-torn country.
A fishing boat ferrying more than 2,000 weapons, hidden under fishing nets, was intercepted by Australian Navy. The weapons cache included assault rifles, rocket-propelled grenade launchers, and mortar tubes. The boat was headed to Somalia and may be part of a larger network of vessels that regularly supply arms to the country that has been barred from buying weapons.
