A North Korea-linked ship owned by a company which has helped the DPRK smuggle weapons docked at a Chinese coal handling port on Sunday after arriving in the region last week, the NK Pro vessel tracker shows.
The Tanzanian-flagged Ji Xing began broadcasting its location near the port in southern China following a long absence from international tracking systems.
While vessel location data does not include information on cargo, commercially available satellite imagery shows the port is equipped to handle numerous bulk cargos, with large mounds of coal visible near the vessel’s position.[/p
