"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

More North Korean drug running?

The prosecution and customs officials in Pusan yesterday said they seized a large amount of narcotics from a Chinese vessel.
Some 45 kilograms of methamphetamines, commonly known here as ``philopon", were found and the estimated market value is about 150 billion won.

The officials said they raided a Chinese vessel that arrived here last month via Najin Port in North Korea. There is presumably some 110 kilograms of drugs inside the vessel, according to the prosecution.

The prosecution is combing through the vessel and is looking into whether there is any connection between the drugs and China-based criminal rings.
