The Cuban government says a North Korean ship held in the Panama Canal on its way from the country was carrying obsolete arms for repair.



The Government said the weapons, manufactured half-a-century ago, were to be returned to Cuba after being refurbished.



The ship was seized by Panama after undeclared military cargo was found hidden in a shipment of sugar.



Panama's president said it included sophisticated missile equipment.
