Ship loaded with Iranian cargo in possible breach of US sanctions on Iran – video

Video obtained by the Guardian shows the unloading of Iranian fertiliser from a cargo ship, CS Future, at Lianyungang port in China. The fertiliser is then loaded onto another cargo ship, the Bulk Aquila, which was due to carry the product to India on behalf of an Australian-owned company, Quantum Fertiliser. International companies face potentially significant punishments for breaching sanctions imposed by the US on trade with Iran. Quantum, a trading subsidiary of the ASX-listed multinational Incitec Pivot, said it was 'misled about the origin of the product' and urgently offloaded the cargo.
