The Danish freighter Leopard, which is apparently carrying arms or explosives, has been hijacked by pirates in the Bay of Aden.

The company “Shipcraft” – www.shipcraft.dk (from the North Copenhagen suburb of Hoersholm) – which specializes in cargoes like arms or nuclear waste – closed down its home page a couple of hours after the news – apparently in a hush-up attempt.

Also in the 1980s, such rogue shipping companies – probably with CIA connections – were active in arms smuggling to South Africa and in the Iran-Contra affair – but were protected by the government.
