COLON, Panama: The 35-strong crew of the North Korea-flagged Chong Chon Gang ship being held in Panama for carrying undeclared Cuban weapons is physically well, a Red Cross team said on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila). Panamanian Red Cross director Jaime Fernandez said the North Koreans, who reportedly tried to mutiny when Panama stopped their creaky freighter, face arms trafficking charges after missile and other weapons parts, as well as two Soviet-era fighter planes, were seized.
