UN to Investigate N. Korean Ship Seized in Panama

The United Nations plans to launch an on-site inspection of a North Korean ship intercepted by Panama while carrying undeclared military equipment.
A UN source said Thursday that the UN Security Council's sanctions committee will carry out the investigation at Panama’s request.
Panama's Foreign Ministry and Security Ministry said the five-member team of UN experts will arrive in the Central American country on August 5.  
Panama says the North Korean ship sought to smuggle undeclared military items through the Panama Canal after departing from Cuba.
Cuba claims the ship’s cargo is “obsolete” defense weapons that North Korea will repair and return on a legitimate contract.
