S. Korean Fishing Boat Captured for Illegal Intrusion into DPRK

Pyongyang, October 27 (KCNA) — The Korean Central News Agency issued the following report on Oct. 26:

According to a relevant institution, “391Hungjin”, a south Korean fishing boat, was captured at dawn of Oct. 21 when it illegally intruded into waters of the East Sea of Korea under the control of the DPRK side.
The investigation results proved that the boat and its crew deliberately intruded into the DPRK waters for fishing.
However, the DPRK side decided to repatriate the boat and its crew from the humanitarian point of view, taking into account the fact that all the crewmen honestly admitted their offence, repeatedly apologizing and asking for leniency.
It will repatriate the boat and its crew at the designated waters of the military boundary line in the East Sea (38°39′20″latitude, 128°38′10″longitude) at 18:00 on Oct. 27.
