US NAVY INSPECT CARGO SHIP IN NORTHERN GULF WATERS.
A U.S. navy inspection team cuts through the water (bottom R) away from
the detained cargo ship Al Noor (bottom L) registered in Wonsan, Korea,
towards the U.S. navy destroyer, the USS Higgins (top), in the northern
Gulf February 16, 2003, as part of the enforcement of U.N. sanctions
against Iraq. The U.S. Coast Guard cutter, the CGC Boutwell, raced
after the cargo ship early Sunday after it attempted to pass unseen
from Iraqi waters towards the Iranian coast. REUTERS/Leila
