Five men – four Egyptians and a Maltese – were arrested after the army found an “excessive amount of fuel” on board a fishing boat. The Armed Forces of Malta stopped the Maltese-registered fishing vessel Dimitra on Thursday evening. During a search, army personnel noticed the vessel was carrying an excessive amount of fuel “stored in precarious and hazardous conditions”, the AFM said. The army escorted the vessel to Malta and it was berthed close to the shipyards in Marsa. The crew members were handed over to the police.
