Navy locates third explosives container

January 05, 2006 03:01 IST

Western Naval Command ships have located the third of six explosives-laden containers, which were on their way to Afghanisan for the road jobs undertaken by Border Roads Organisation.

These containers reportedly slipped overboard from MV Eugenia off the Mumbai coast.

The ships had located two containers on Sunday.

Meanwhile, divers of the ONGC Seamac III, a multi-purpose support vessel, are assisting the Navy, an official statement said.

Two containers, containing nearly 100 metric tonne explosives, despatched on Honduran-registered merchant vessal `MV Eugenia' were dumped in deep sea, reportedly after the ship met rough weather.
