    just goes to show how many bad things arrive here by cargo ships. much of the blame here has to sit with the owners and captain of the ship itself.

    Failure lays with them who are suppose to inspect the cargo and the members of the boat prior to them boarding the ships. This isn’t something new, so why aren’t the loop-holes being blocked or at least, curtailed? :-(
