With $100 million cargo, oil tanker vanishes

The US Coast Guard has lost track of a Kurdish tanker carrying $100 million in disputed oil off the coast of Texas. Headed for Galveston, the United Kalavyrvta was anchored at least 60 miles off-shore when it vanished from radar screens. The ship's haul fell under legal dispute when Iraq filed a lawsuit in US courts, urging American officials to grab the ship's oil in Galveston because it belongs to Iraq, not the Kurdish National Government.
