VERBATIM: The seizure happened after a team from the USS Chinook, a Cyclone-class coastal patrol boat, boarded a traditional wooden sailing vessel known. They discovered the Kalashnikov-style rifles individually wrapped in green tarps aboard the ship. That’s according to comments by Commander Timothy Hawkins, a spokesman for the Navy’s Mideast-based 5th Fleet.
