France Inspects North Korean Ship

French authorities inspecting the North Korean ship Am Nok Gang in the Indian Ocean territory of Mayotte have found nothing "suspect", but would continue checks until the weekend, the foreign ministry said.“The customs services are currently proceeding with the complete and thorough examination of the cargo and crew of a North Korean ship which called at Mayotte,” foreign ministry spokesman Jean-Baptiste Mattei said. The inspection was being carried out under UN Security Council Resolution 1718 declaring an arms embargo on North Korea in the wake of its October 9 nuclear test.
