  • Description

    TWO FISH FACTORY SHIPS FOR NORTH KOREA ARE BEING CONSTRUCTED BY A DUTCH SHIP-YARD NEAR ROTTERDAM. THE SHIPYARD IS REPORTED TO HAVE DENIED ACCESS TO NEWSMEN AND PHOTOGRAPHERS TO VIEW THE SHIPS FROM INSIDE. CAMERAMEN HAD TO FILM FROM OUTSIDE THE YARD.

    A REPORT IN THE NEW YORK TIMES SAYS THAT UNITED STATES AGENTS IN ROTTERDAM HAVE BEEN SHOWING "UNUSUAL INTEREST IN THESE SHIPS, IN PART TO RAISE SOME APPREHENSION IN NORTH KOREA THAT ONE OR BOTH OF THE VESSELS MIGHT BE SEIZED ON THEIR TRIP TO THE FAR EAST." THE PAPER SAID THAT ONE OF THE SHIPS IS ALMOST READY TO SAIL AND A NORTH KOREAN CREW IS ALREADY IN HOLLAND TO TAKE HER OVER.

    BUT DUTCH SOURCES SAY THAT IT WILL BE SAILED TO NORTH KOREA BY A DUTCH CREW. THE UNITED STATES STATE DEPARTMENT HAS DECLINED TO COMMENT ON THE NEW YORK TIMES REPORT.

    IN JANUARY THIS YEAR, NORTH KOREA CAPTURED A U.S. SHIP, PUEBLO, AND CLAIMED THAT IT WAS CONDUCTING INTELLIGENCE WORK. THE CREW MEMBERS ARE STILL UNDER INTERNMENT IN NORTH KOREA.
