A Russian yacht has been detained by North Korean coast guards in the Sea of Japan with five crew on board and towed in to land, Russian officials said Saturday.
“The North Korean side has communicated that the yacht has been taken to the port of Kimchaek,” Igor Agafonov, a Foreign Ministry official in the far-eastern city of Vladivostok told state-run RIA Novosti news agency.

“The crew is alive and well. We are still waiting for an explanation from North Korea as to the reasons for the detention,” Agafonov said, adding that diplomats were seeking permission to visit the crew.
Earlier an unnamed official at the Russian embassy in Pyongyang told TASS news agency that the sailboat Elfin was detained by North Korean coast guards late Friday with five people on board as it was sailing from a competition in the South Korean port of Busan to Vladivostok.
