Almost 2,000 AK-47s Were Discovered On A Stateless Fishing Boat
Thousands of weapons were discovered on a stateless fishing boat. Where did they come from?By Jake Godin | March 7, 2016
The Royal Australian Navy found more than 2,000 weapons on board this fishing vessel in the Arabian Sea: 1,989 AK-47s; 100 RPGs; 49 PKMs; 39 PKM spare barrels; and 20 60mm mortar tubes.
So, a lot of weapons. But where did it all come from?
Well, the boat was stateless — not registered with any country — so we don't really know yet.
