Ghost ship ­


Police officers inspect a wooden boat marked with Hangul characters, presumably from North Korea, on Sado Island, Niigata prefecture, northern Japan, in this photo taken by Kyodo News on Wednesday. Five bodies were found on Wednesday morning in the boat, which had washed up on rocks by a beach on the island, Kyodo reported. The police and the Japanese coast guard are seeking to identify the bodies, which appear to be adults, and are looking into how the boat drifted onto shore. Details were not yet known, including when the five died, Kyodo also reported. [REUTERS/YONHAP]
