North Koreans Holding Chinese Boat for Ransom
BEIJING — Armed North Koreans are holding a Chinese fishing boat and its crew for ransom despite the protests of Chinese officials, the boat’s owner said Monday.

The boat’s seizure — which occurred early this month but was revealed by Chinese officials only Sunday night — is the latest dust-up between North Korea and China, which Pyongyang has long relied on to prop up its economy and defend it from international censure efforts by the United States and others.

The vessel’s owner, Yu Xuejun, was not on board when the boat was seized. He has posted increasingly desperate messages about the situation on his microblog in the past two days. In the latest post Monday morning, Yu described a call he received from North Koreans, who demanded ransom and then handed the phone to his boat’s captain.

“His voice was trembling. I could feel he was very afraid,” Yu wrote about his captain. “I suspected that my crew has been mistreated. I can’t imagine what North Korea side could do.”

BEIJING: North Korea has released 16 Chinese fishermen and their boat, Chinese state-run media said Tuesday, after reports that armed assailants had taken the sailors hostage.

“All the fishermen with the boat are safe on their way back,” Xinhua news agency said, citing a Chinese embassy official in Pyongyang it said had heard the news from the shipowner.

Boy... did they just 'bite the hand that feeds them'.

Since China has been sending money and aid to North Korea for the last couple of years, and since Kim went to China to get their 'blessing' before he took over for his father... it has always been a silent understanding that when China says 'Jump', Kim asks how high?

To take this China Fishing boat, and then 'demand' money for to return the ship, is not going to set very well with the men that are in charge of China. Kim had better watch out, because it will not be the US or Japan that is going to 'knock' some sense into him.. it is going to be China. And he is not going to be able to duck that one very easily.
