North Korea Accuses U.S. Of 'Robbery' After It Seized Ship

Business Insider reports Pyongyang said the US committed an "unlawful brutal robbery" by seizing a North Korean cargo ship over alleged sanctions violations.

The US announced on Thursday that it had seized the "sanctions-busting ship", which it sailed for three weeks to American Samoa to investigate.

North Korea said the US should consider "what kind of consequences their daylight robbery could bring to the political situation" and accused the US of violating agreements from a summit between the countries.
