The Argentine naval vessel ARA Libertad is tugged out of Tema harbour in Accra December 19, 2012. The Argentine naval vessel detained in Ghana at the request of a hedge fund seeking payment on defaulted government bonds left the West African country on Wednesday, a port official said. The ARA Libertad, a tall sailing ship used for training, was detained on a court order obtained by NML Capital Ltd, which claims it is owed $300 million from Argentina's default in 2002.
