Canadian navy boards migrant ship

The Canadian Navy has boarded a cargo ship carrying nearly 500 Tamil migrants from Sri Lanka.

Canadian authorities initially said the ship MV Sun Sea was boarded at midday on Thursday when it veered towards land, but police later
said it was not boarded until evening as the ship was
escorted to Vancouver island by a naval ship.
