Independent Films, Politics, Documentaries
Canadian Navy ship patrolling the central Mediterranean under NATO’s arms embargo operation tracks down and hails a suspicous vessel.
The ship’s boarding team find dozens of rebells transporting arms from Benghazi to Misrata. NATO’s highest command decides to allow the vessel to procede, as the arms had not come from outside Libya and were intended to defend civilians in Misrata. The captain and crew are happy with the outcome as it proves the naval patrols are working.
