Treasure Story Becomes an International Incident

The recent discovery of the Black Swan sea treasure has the makings of an international incident, with the Spanish government asserting that the find may have been located in Spanish territorial waters, with this publication referring to a "possible crime" carried out by the principals of Odyssey Marine. The Spanish Navy, therefore, has put the ship under surveillance.

Attracting attention was the departure of a chartered 757 (ostensibly carrying the treasure) from an airstrip in Gibraltar for the United States.

One imagines divers working furiously to recover the coins, against the clock, trying to prevent the secret of the location from getting out.

It almost has the makings of a James Bond film (assuming it does evolve into an international incident) or certainly, James Cameron.
