Mexico declares N. Korean ship abandoned, will sell for scrap
Announcement concludes nearly two-year period where ship has sat in Mexican port

The Mexican government earlier this month classified the North Korean vessel in Tuxpan port as abandoned, and said that it would be sold for scrap.

The announcement concludes nearly a two-year limbo for the DPRK registered Mu Du Bong, which was seized after it ran aground on the east Mexican coast in 2014.
