Finland police find Patriot missiles
Helsinki - Finnish police say they are investigating a cargo of 69 Patriot surface-to-air missiles found in a ship destined for the Chinese port of Shanghai.
The National Bureau of Investigation says the British-flagged M/S Thor Liberty arrived from northern Germany on December 15 and docked in a Finnish port to load up with anchor chains.
The bureau said on Wednesday that the vessel was held in port because it also contained materials for the manufacture of explosives.
It said police and customs officials are investigating whether the shipment broke Finnish laws on weapons trading.
