Has anyone else heard the news on CNN that 2 people aboard a Carnival Cruise Ship were arrested for having alleged "terroristic ties"? I've only heard this once, briefly and not heard anything since. I think they were in the Miami area. Can anyone confirm?
Answering my own question,
I found this on the Celebrity board:
Our local news just stated that the Pt. of Miami has been shut down...a Carnival ship coming into port this am at 3:15 called INS, FBI & Coast Guard and 2 passangers were detained on the ship and taken off when it got into port. they do not know if it is related to the Tuesday terrorists...
Unless the information comes from a reliable source that is in a official capacity or directly from an official site, do not take it as being true. The Port of Miami as of this moment is not closed. There were two individuals that were identified by their names on the passenger manifest as matching names of people who are suspects in terrorist activities. The FBI was notified and the USCG intercepted the ship and boarded to assist CCL staff security in placing these individuals under detainment until this matter is solved. In no way can or should this be taken as finding hijacking terrorist onboard a cruise ship with bad intentions towrads cruise passengers.
