Fishermen held in North return


Four fishermen detained in North Korea for 30 days after crossing a maritime border returned to South Korean soil on Aug. 29. North Korea handed over the fishing vessel and its crew to a South Korean patrol boat at 5 p.m. at the eastern sea border. The four men were greeted by their families after arriving at Sokcho harbor, Gangwon, three hours later. “I’m sorry for causing so much concern,” said Park Kwang-seon, the boat’s captain, upon arrival at the harbor.
