Report: Cargo vessel believed to be shipping coal seen at North Korean port

North Korea is accused of violating sanctions after a ship carrying what appeared to be coal was spotted docked in the country's western port of Nampo, Yonhap News Agency reported Aug. 14, citing Voice of America.

The country is banned from exporting coal, iron ore and other mineral resources under U.N. Security Council Resolution 2371 passed in August 2017 as a response to North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile program.

The ship was seen loading black material nearby in a satellite photo captured by U.S. Earth-imaging company Planet Labs, the report said, adding that four such vessels were spotted at the port for three to four days this month.

In March, the U.S. Treasury Department accused North Korea of evading the sanctions by exporting coal and refined oil through illegal ship-to-ship transfers, the report said.
