Lebanese authorities: probe this...

One of the most mind-boggling statements I've ever seen, this time by Lebanese officialdom:

"The FRANCOP ship entered Lebanese territorial waters at noon today and, upon its arrival off Beirut port, the navy in cooperation with UN naval forces searched the vessel," an army statement said.
Probably searching for the wrappings of the ammo (that never was there to start with, according to same people who are now doing the "search"). And then a topper:
Military intelligence began interrogating the crew on the motives for the seizure of the vessel while the concerned authorities... will take all the necessary measures to ensure it does not carry banned goods.
Banned goods? What banned goods?
