Argentine navy ship's crew leave Ghana

The crew of an Argentine navy ship, which was impounded as part of a debt dispute more than three weeks ago in Ghana, are heading to Argentina.

Almost 300 sailors left on an Air France plane chartered by the Argentine government.

A skeleton crew is staying on board the three-masted Libertad to maintain it.

The tall ship was prevented from leaving Ghana after a local court ruled in favour of a US fund.
