On 26/1/1918 the Argentine auxiliary schooner MINISTRO YRIONDA was torpedoed off Toulon (Buenos Aires & Barcelona for Genoa) by UC-67, depite wearing prominent neutral markings.

Is there any info on why she was sunk, and whether Germany made any compensation or restitution to Argentina?

MINISTRO YRIONDA was ex-hulk MINERAL ex-full-rigged ship CARLO P ex-ADRIANA ex-LOCH ECK [not ex-LOCHEE as written in several places]
