UAE 'seizes N Korea arms cargo'
The United Arab Emirates has seized a ship illegally carrying embargoed North Korean weapons bound for Iran, diplomatic sources at the UN have said.
A diplomat told the AFP news agency that the UAE had informed UN officials responsible for implementing sanctions on Pyongyang.
The UK-based Financial Times reported earlier on Friday that the ship was seized "some weeks ago".
It said the armaments included rocket-propelled grenades.
The arms had been falsely labelled as "machine parts," the Financial Times reported, adding that the vessel was still being held in the UAE.
I thought there was an embargo nearer to the North Korean coast, how come this ship got through?
