N Korea weapons plane seized

Thai police impound cargo plane carrying 35 tonnes of weapons made in North Korea.



    Police in Thailand have seized a cargo plane carrying 35 tonnes of battlefield weapons, including missile launchers, made in North Korea.

    The seizure is one of the biggest ever busts in the international arms embargo against North Korea.

    The aircraft landed in Bangkok on Sunday on route from the North Korean capital, Pyongyang, but its exact destination is unclear.
