Seized Tanker Awaits Unloading

Monday, February 07, 2000

Russian officials said they expected the tanker, which was detained last week by a multinational patrol enforcing U.N. sanctions on Iraq, to be released after unloading.

A Russian diplomat in Oman said the ship, which docked earlier, had been moved to an area near the capital Muscat where the fuel could be unloaded later today or early Tuesday.
