South Africa says to hold inquiry into alleged Russian arms shipment

South Africa has undertaken to institute an independent inquiry led by a retired judge into an alleged arms shipment to Russia, South Africa’s presidency said on Thursday. The statement came after US ambassador to South Africa Reuben Brigety told South African media at a briefing on Thursday that Washington believed a Russian vessel had uploaded weapons and ammunition from South Africa in December.
