Paris - A French military official on Friday confirmed that a Russian-crewed cargo ship that vanished two weeks ago has been spotted off the Cape Verde islands.

Commander Jerome Baroe told AFP that a Portuguese plane had flown over the ship. A Portuguese military spokesman could not confirm the information.

A Cape Verdean coastguard source told AFP earlier that the Arctic Sea had been spotted some 400 nautical miles (740 kilometres) off one of the islands, outside of its territorial waters.
