U.N. blacklists operator of North Korean ship seized in Panama

A U.N. Security Council committee on Monday blacklisted the operator of a North Korean ship, which was seized near the Panama Canal last year for smuggling Soviet-era arms, including two MiG-21 jet fighters, under thousands of tonnes of sugar. The North Korea sanctions committee designated Ocean Maritime Management, which operated the Chong Chon Gang, the ship that was detained a year ago. The committee said in an implementation assistance notice, obtained by Reuters, "Ocean Maritime Management Company, Ltd, played a key role in arranging the shipment of the concealed cargo of arms and related materiel."
