Cranes reloaded MV Shakir with the seized weapons shipment including battle tanks, artillery pieces and modern combat vehicles and one speed boat late on Monday night, two days after public display.

Sudan’s Al Bashir is said to have said that the heavy weaponry was bought from a market in United Arab Emirates to Somaliland President Ahmed Mohamed Mohamud (Siilaanyo).
