via South Korea seizes ship suspected of transferring oil to North – NY Daily News

South Korea has seized a ship suspected of illegally supplying oil to North Korea, the center of a brewing international controversy on the peninsula that has widened to China and President Trump.

Authorities in Seoul revealed Friday that they had briefly taken the Lighthouse Winmore, a tanker registered in Hong Kong that allegedly transferred fuel to a vessel from the isolated hermit kingdom.

The Lighthouse Winmore, which the U.S. recently called to be on a United Nations blacklist of ships involved with North Korea, was seized and inspected at the Yeosu port in late November, according to news agency Yonhap.
