KOREAS: PYONGYANG ANNOUNCES SEIZURE OF SOUTH KOREAN SHIP
Tension between North and South Korea is still high; Pyongyang’s navy has seized Seoul’s ship for illigal fishing. The fishing ship was allegedly in North Korea’s “economically interesting waters” in the disputed Yellow Sea, on August 8. This was released only today by Pyongyang’s agency Kona. South Korean and U.S. Navy excercises are still ongoing in the area.
