Russia issues three more indictments against North Korean fishermen

DPRK nationals are accused of attacking border patrol agent while illegally fishing in Russian waters last September

Prosecutors in Moscow issued three indictments this week against North Korean fishermen accused of illegally fishing in Russian waters last September and attacking Russian border guards when they were caught, an announcement on a government website said.

The move comes after a separate indictment was issued earlier this month against another one of the accused North Korean poachers.
