Fox News – A British marine insurer cancelled its coverage of a Russian ship after learning the ship may be carrying helicopters and missiles to Syria, The Telegraph reported.

The ship, named MV Alaed, reportedly picked up the Mi25 helicopters known as “flying tanks,” which were being repaired at the Russian port of Kaliningrad, the report said. The helicopters were then shipped on a course that most likely would lead it to the Syrian port of Tartous, the report said.
