According to a local newspaper, frigate PNS Shah Jahan of the Pakistan Navy has recently docked in Toamasina. According to the same newspaper, teh city is in high alert. Why is that? Wasn't the arrival of the ship known beforehand? And by the way, why did the ship dock in a large civilian port instead of the more military-oriented port of Antsiranana, several undred miles north of Toamasina? Why do I even ask these questions and what does it matter?
