Summary The Tampa drama was one of the major news stories in 2001. The Norwegian ship MS tampa saved 438 Afghan refugees from a sinking vessel off the coast of Australia. The drama caused a diplomatic conflict between Norway and Australia and put the international spotlight on the chaotic legal situation for refugess at sea. The hero of the story is Captain Arne Rinnan, whose actions at sea present a rare example of humanitarian behavior. The victims are the 438 refugees, who share their reasons for fleeing Afghanistan, and the fear they felt when they realized their ship was sinking. Why would no government, Australian, Norwegian or otherwise, accept these refugees? The MS Tampa is the story not only of the refugees and their hero, Captain Rinnan, but of the broader story of international politics and chaotic laws which strips legal rights from refugees at sea.
