North Korea's U.N. Ambassador Kim Song held a rare news conference at the United Nations in New York to demand the immediate return of the ship, which the United States said earlier this month it had seized over accusations it was used for coal shipments in violation of U.S. and U.N. sanctions...."

more to it than sounds


for ONE thing, it was seized a YEAR ago!

for another, while the headlines say over "violating the embargo" (not an international valid reason to seize a ship legally)

making it some what more internationally legal

USA has become very good at legal trickery to justify violating international long standing law
