BREAKING: U.S. Seizes North Korean Coal Ship

More global provocation by the Trump Administration.

U.S. authorities have seized a North Korean ship used to sell coal allegedly in violation of international sanctions, the first such move by Justice Department officials as they ratchet up enforcement efforts against the regime in Pyongyang, reports The Washington Post.

Justice Department officials on Thursday confirmed the Wise Honest is approaching U.S. territorial waters, with coordination of the U.S. Marshals and the Coast Guard.

“This sanctions-busting ship is now out of service,” Assistant Attorney General John Demers said in announcing the seizure.



The cargo ship was on its way to American Samoa, according to a Justice Department spokesman.
