On July 22, 2009, the United Arab Emirates seized 10 containers of North Korean military supplies labeled as oil boring machine parts on a freighter bound for Iran. Among the components reportedly taken were 2,030 detonators for short-range rockets, electric circuitry and solid-fuel propellant. The freighter, a CMA-CGM-owned vessel flying a Bahamian flag called the ANL Australia, took on the cargo in Shanghai before departing for Dubai. According to shipping records, the materials were ferried to Shanghai by a Chinese ship from the port of Dalian, where a North Korean vessel out of Nampo had left them two days earlier. The shipment was in violation of U.N. Security Council Resolution 1747, which bars Iran from importing conventional arms.
