Sugar, bees and Korean slow search on N. Korean cargo ship

Ministry of Health now having to fumigate seized ship on daily basis due to uncontrollable swarms of bees

SEOUL – Sugar and language barriers are seriously hampering the ongoing search for more North Korea-bound weapons on a seized cargo ship in Panama, local daily La Prensa said this weekend.

Although the 35-member crew of the seized Chong Chon Gang were reportedly in good health following an international Red Cross inspection, a lack of Korean-language speakers has made interviewing the crew almost impossible.
