DPRK faces fine for ship with weapons

The Panama Canal authority said Thursday it will impose as much as a $1 million fine on the Democratic People's Republic of Korea freighter caught with an undeclared shipment of Cuban weapons.

"It is a flagrant violation of safe passage through the Panama Canal and we have little tolerance for this kind of activity," canal administrator Jorge Quijano said.

"It is going to be sanctioned," he said, adding that authorities were still mulling the size of the fine.
