Four N. Korean ships, three with troubled pasts, allowed into Chinese coal port

Three of the vessels have strong ties to sanctions-breaking networks

Four North Korean vessels, three of which have been linked to illicit sanctions-breaking networks, were allowed to enter a Chinese port which handles coal between Wednesday evening and Thursday morning, analysis of positional information from ship tracking site Marine Traffic shows.

The four vessels are all owned by Pyongyang-based companies and have been waiting near the port for over two weeks.
