Too bad they couldn’t detain or arrest the suspected Iranian crew. I’m slightly amused that they will be turned over to the US for documentation and destruction. It would have made more sense to just dump ’em overboard after recording the serial numbers and other details. Now the US will spend who knows how much investigating the trafficking of these weapons with no ability to arrest or sanction the crewmen involved or Iran for shipping them.
Good on the Royal Australian Navy for their diligence.

They should have placed scuttling charges, hog tied the crew, and touched her off.

Sounds like in the end it will cost more destroying and documenting those weapons than it did to manufacture them. Throw them in the ocean and save a few bucks.
