CRETE SHIPThe Greek Coast Guard has seized, on Tuesday 09/01/2015,  a vessel carrying ammunition and weapons near the southern island of Crete, authorities said, according to the Associated Press. The shipment is believed to be linked to the Islamic State branch in Libya, according to local media reports. Authorities have not yet confirmed whether it was connected to I.S.I.S, and said more information would be released later in the day.
