North Korea detained Russain boat Elfin

As I'm doing my morning dispatch this story just pops up. It appears one story said 4 on board others say 5 is on board. No reason mentioned yet as to why North Korea's coast guard towed this boat from appx 85 NM from shore.

Vladamir Putin is no Barack Obama. Expect quick results.

He has already requested release from what I read in one of the articles.

Problem is that he has to go through China to get at them.

Re: North Korea detained Russain boat Elfin

I too expect this will be cleared up rather quickly.
Putin lost face by having one of his planes shot down by the Turks, now he is probably itching to show strength. North Korea is the country everybody loves to hate, should be an easy "kill".

Re: North Korea detained Russain boat Elfin

I'm sure North Korea does not want to piss off a friend with a UN veto. The interesting question will be, what will happen to the Coast Guard captain or whoever authorised the detention of the yacht. Might not be good to be that person.

Re: North Korea detained Russain boat Elfin

Of all the other sites that had the story when I was looking to see if it was creditable this one seemed pretty legit.

Re: North Korea detained Russain boat Elfin

another report

North Korea frees Russian yacht, crew detained 'by mistake': Russian media | Reuters

News agency TASS quoted the consul general as saying a North Korean fishing boat had spotted an image it identified as South Korean on the yacht, which was then towed off to the port of Kimchaek.
