Cuba Caught Sending Weapons to North Korean

Two-hundred forty tons of “obsolete defensive weaponry” belonging to Cuba was discovered hidden in shipments of sugar aboard a North Korean cargo ship in Panama. Panamanian President Ricardo Martinelli criticized Cuba’s violation of U.N. resolutions, which prevent arms trafficking. "The captain has tried to commit suicide, and the crew rioted," the president said, adding that the captain also had a heart attack.
