MilitaryCorruption.com has learned that a United States-registered 727-100 cargo plane, loaded with arms, ammunition and 64 mercenaries of various nationalities, has been seized by authorities at Harare Airport in the African nation of Zimbabwe.
As of press time, we have not been able to get any comment from the U.S. Embassy in Harare to confirm or deny the report, first aired over the BBC. All we know so far, is the aircraft was detained on the runway Sunday night (March 7) and Zimbabwean Home Affairs Minister Kembo Mohadi announced an investigation was underway after the plane's owners "made a false declaration as to the aircraft's cargo and crew."
One U.S. military source told MCC the incident could have stemmed from a thwarted CIA mission. "There also may have been former American military servicemen among the "mercenaries" taken into custody," the source said.
