Seized Argentine naval vessel

The flagship of Argentina's navy, the A.R.A. Libertad sits docked at the port of Tema, where it is being held by a judge answering a complaint from a U.S. hedge fund. A court in Ghana on Tuesday, Oct. 2, ordered the ship held in port until Argentina posts a court bond equal to its value, which could be $10 million or more. The three-masted tall ship stopped in Tema while training hundreds of navy cadets.
