Last week a Russian ship purported to have been transporting a load of pine to Algeria disappeared. No one knows were it is what happened to it and what happened to its 15 man Russian crew. Rumour has it that it was transporting a secret load but again nobody seems to know what that could have been. Suggestions of Piracy have been dismissed as improbable.
Both the Russian and US government have been silent as to what might have happened on what for all intends and purposes should have been a major international incident.
Very curious, indeed.
