Greek authorities are holding an Iran-bound ship carrying materials for the manufacture of surface-to-surface missiles, the Elefterotipia newspaper reported Friday. According to the Greek paper, the ship, called the Susanna, left a port in Slovenia more than a month ago. The Jerusalem Post could not independently confirm the report. Last week, the Cypriot Navy stopped a Syria-bound Iranian ship, believed to be carrying weapons for Hamas. The US military had previously stopped the vessel in the Red Sea, but allowed it to continue because the US could not legally stop its journey or seize its cargo. The Cypriot-flagged Monchegorsk is currently anchored off the island's southern port of Limassol, and Cypriot President Dimitris Christofias said last Friday that the ship had violated UN resolutions.
