Swedish weapons on hijacked ship?

The newspaper Hallands Nyheter reports that the Danish ship seized by pirates off Somalia last week may have been carrying Swedish weapons or explosives.

The newspaper says munitions were loaded onto the freighter, the MV Leopard, in the Swedish port of Varberg in November. The Danish newspaper Politiken has reported that the Leopard was carrying weapons when it was boarded by pirates.

The six crew members are missing after the attack, and are believed to have been kidnapped.
