The United Arab Emirates seized a ship transporting explosives, detonators, grenades, and munitions bound for Iran two weeks ago, according to diplomats. The shipment is in violation of United Nations sanctions. The ship, owned by an Australian subsidiary of a French company, had 10 containers on board disguised as oil equipment. The U.N. has yet to receive a response from either Iran or North Korea. Earlier this summer, the Security Council voted to adopt a resolution that punishes North Korea for its recent nuclear-bomb test and missile launches. It requires the inspection of any material in international waters that is suspected of carrying arms.
