reports that three cargo ships are being tracked by US and British
intelligence on suspicion that they might be carrying Iraqi weapons of
mass destruction.

Citing “authoritative shipping industry sorces,” the paper says that the
ships are in the 35,000 to 40,000 dwt range and “have been sailing
around the world’s oceans for the past three months while maintaining
radio silence in clear violation of international maritime law.”

The vessels left port in late November, just a few days after UN weapons
inspectors led by Hans Blix began their search, says the story.

The ships were chartered by a shipping agent based in Egypt and are
flying under the flags of three different countries, says the story,
which says “the vessels are thought to have spent much of their time in
the deep waters of the Indian Ocean, berthing at sea when they need to
collect supplies of fuel and food. They have berthed in a handful of
Arab countries, including Yemen.”

U.S. and British military forces are believed to be reluctant to stop
and search the vessels, says the newspaper, for fear that any
intervention might result in them being scuttled with resulting
catastrophic environmental damage.

According to the newspaper, the ships are thought to have set sail from
a country other than Iraq to avoid running the gauntlet of Western naval
vessels patrolling the Gulf. “Defense experts believe that, if they are
carrying weapons of mass destruction, these could have been smuggled out
through Syria or Jordan.”
