Chinese ship with Zim arms heads to Angola

From africaasia news service:

A Chinese ship carrying arms destined for Zimbabwe headed to Angola after a South African court barred its cargo from being transported overland to the border, CNN reported Saturday.

Local media had reported that the vessel, An Yue Jiang, left the South African port of Durban late Friday after the Durban high court barred its cargo from being taken to landlocked Zimbabwe, which is gripped by a political crisis.

CNN said the ship was headed to the port of Luanda, in Angola, citing the South African Department of Transport. It said that it had sailed away before the court order could be served to the ship's captain.////
