Greek authorities raided Tuesday a German-flagged boat suspected of illegal arms smuggling that was headed to Syria, a police source said.

Following a tip off from a third-party country, Greek authorities intercepted the boat that had moored in the port of Piraeus near Athens after arriving from North Korea.

So far no weapons have been found on board but the investigation was ongoing, a military source said.
