    Anti-immigration fears have been stoked by a story that a container of "plastic furniture" destined for Syrian refugees actually contained thousands of weapons and tons of ammunition.

    However the ship was actually sailing from Turkey (where most of the Syrian refugees are) to the Libyan city of Misrata, in Africa, and while the intended recipients are unclear, they were certainly not refugees.
