Forensic workers work in a container holding a missile-shaped object seized from a North Korean flagged ship in Colon City
Panama forensic workers work in a container holding a green missile-shaped object seized from the North Korean flagged ship “Chong Chon Gang” at the Manzanillo Container Terminal in Colon City July 17, 2013. U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon praised Panama on Wednesday for seizing a North Korean ship carrying arms from Cuba, adding that the U.N. sanctions committee would take up the issue promptly. Cuba said the weapons were being sent back to North Korea for repair and included two anti-aircraft missile batteries, nine disassembled rockets, two MiG-21 fighter jets, and 15 MiG-21 engines, all Soviet-era military weaponry built in the middle of the last century.
