North Korean ship caught with missiles after leaving State Sponsor of Terror Cuba

As if the narrative that the Cuban dictatorship is not a State Sponsor of Terror so diligently pushed by the Castro regime and its "Cuba Expert" propagandists here in the U.S. were not dubious enough, we learn that a North Korean cargo ship that had just left Cuba has been caught by Panama hiding sophisticated missile equipment under a "cargo" of Cuban sugar.

A North Korean ship carrying what is believed to be “sophisticated missile equipment” hidden in sugar containers was stopped while returning home from Cuba, Panamanian officials said late Monday.

Speaking to Radio Panama, President Ricardo Martinelli said the captain of the ship tried to kill himself after officials began searching the consignment of sugar.

The vessel -- identified by Lloyd's List Intelligence as the Chong Chon Gang -- was heading for the Panama Canal when it was stopped. It was then taken to the port of Manzanillo to be searched.

“We suspected that it was carrying drugs and we brought it to port and we started verifying everything that was on the ship,” Martinelli said. “We started disembarking the sugar and found some containers that we believe are carrying sophisticated missile equipment."

He said that the ship was being held while a “more thorough investigation” was carried out.

Martinelli added that officials had taken photographs of the arms – one of which he posted on Twitter – “so that the world knows that you can’t transfer non-declared, war-like material through the Panama Canal.”
