    Background: ARMED DANISH POLICE AT DAWN TODAY (THURSDAY) BOARDED A PIRATE COMMERCIAL RADIO SHIP "LUCKY STAR" MOORED IN INTERNATIONAL WATERS OFF COPENHAGEN.

    POLICE LAUNCHES ESCORTED HER INTO PORT BECAUSE SHE COULD NOT PRODUCE PROOF OF NATIONALITY. HER SEIZURE FOLLOWS A LEGAL BATTLE TO PREVENT THE BROADCASTING OF "RADIO MERCUR" TO DENMARK AND SWEDEN. THE RADIO STATION WAS BANNED AT THE BEGINNING OF AUGUST, SO THE OWNERS SEVERED THEIR LEGAL CONNECTION WITH DENMARK AND THE "LUCKY STAR" STARTED BROADCASTING AGAIN LAST MONDAY UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT.

    THERE WERE FIVE MEMBERS OF THE CREW ON BOARD WHEN THE SHIP DOCKED; BUT THE DANES SAY THE DO NOT PLAN TO BRING CHARGES AGAINST THEM.
