The sinking of the vessel appears to be propaganda...

TOKYO- Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL; President: Koichi Muto) updates the status of the containership MOL Comfort as of 23:00 JST (18:00 Dubai time) on June 22 , 2013. The vessel could not continue sailing under its own power from June 17 because the hull fractured in 2 parts while under way on the Indian Ocean.

Some of the containers might be lost or damaged during the incident, but majority of the cargo are confirmed to be aboard the fore and aft part.

We have contracted with a salvage company and are proceeding to rescue the cargo and hulls. Three tugboats are heading to the site, and two of them are expected to arrive around June 24 while the 3rd one is around June 25.
4. Oil leakage (No change from the Update (No.6))
We confirmed no large volume of oil leakage.

Subject: [grendelreport] CONTAINER SHIP CARRYING ARMS TO SYRIAN REBELS SINKS
When the defense of liberty becomes a crime, tyranny is already in force. At that point, failure to defend liberty makes slavery a certainty.
Look at all the containers on this ship. How many billions did this cost us?
Container Ship Carrying U.S. Arms to FSA Rebels in Syria "Splits an' Sinks"
Karma strikes back
'A large fleet container ship named the "Mol Comfort" was carrying weapons from the U.S. to the FSA Rebels in Syria when it suddenly split in half in the Indian Ocean and sank, as it was making its way from Singapore to Jeddah. On board were 4,500 containers loaded with U.S. arms for the Syrian rebels.'
The cause for this sudden accident is still being reported publicly as "unknown."
As more news becomes available from Syria, it will be reported here.
