Turkey summoned the envoys to Ankara of the European Union, Italy and Germany on Monday to protest over a German attempt to search a Turkish cargo ship for a suspected arms shipment to Libya, the Foreign Ministry said.

Earlier, Germany accused Turkey of preventing German forces belonging to an EU military mission from fully searching the ship, a move Ankara said was a violation of international law.
