North Koreans holding Chinese boat hostage – The Washington Post

BEIJING — Armed North Koreans are holding a Chinese fishing boat and its crew ransom despite the protestation of Chinese officials, the boat’s owner said Monday.

The boat’s seizure — which occurred in early May, but was only revealed by Chinese officials Sunday night — is the latest dust-up between North Korea and China, which Pyongyang has long relied on to prop up its economy and defend it from international censure efforts by the United States and others.
