South Korea seized a 5,000-ton cargo ship on Thursday on suspicion of violating UN Security Council sanctions on North Korea, sources said.

The cargo ship, whose origin is unknown, is now anchored in the port of Busan on the country’s southeastern coast. It was not immediately known what the violations were.

In late March, another 3,000-ton cargo ship, DEYI, bound for Vladivostok, Russia, was seized under similar suspicion in the waters off Yeosu, along the southern coast.

The ship is also currently anchored at the Busan Port anchorage, with the captain and other crew members on board. (Yonhap)
