Despite U.N. sanctions, N. Korean shipping firm operating in Chinese waters

A North Korean shipping company slapped with U.N. sanctions after its freighter was seized last year for smuggling weapons from Cuba is operating as normal in Chinese waters, a website that monitors events in the North said Saturday, citing an analysis of shipping data. The U.N. blacklisted the North Korean company, Ocean Maritime Management , about two months ago for operating the freighter, which was detained by Panamanian authorities in July last year while carrying Soviet-era MiG-21 fighter aircraft, surface-to-air missiles and other arms-related cargo hidden under sacks of sugar.
