ATHENS, Greece (CNN) — A ship packed with explosives may have veered off course from Tunisia to Sudan before it was seized by Greek special forces, officials believe.


Greek merchant marine minister Giorgos Anomeritis said the cargo of the Baltic Sky was “tantamount to the power of an atomic bomb.”


Greek forces boarded the ship Sunday after it entered its waters following a tip from undisclosed sources that it was acting suspiciously.


About 680 tonnes (750 U.S. tons) of explosives and 8,000 detonators were discovered on board.
