The following video shows the cargo ship NOUR M getting beat to crap against a seawall at the port of Rhodes, an island in the eastern Aegean Sea.

The vessel eventually succumbed to the forces of nature today and sank as the next video shows.

According to Greek media, the NOUR M and her crew had been intercepted and subsequently detained by Greek authorities in November after 20,000 Kalashnikov rifles, as well as a large quantity of ammunition, were found on board.

    Odd way to scap a boat, picking up the pieces is going to be labor intensive.

    On the other hand, deserved end to an arms smuggler.  Hope the pier isn’t dinged to badly and/or much oil spilled.
