North Korean Shipping Ban Causes Concern

130 kilometre 'no-go zone'

North Korea has imposed a daytime ban of all shipping activity within a 130 kilmetre 'no-go zone' off it's north-eastern coastal waters.

Analysts belive the measure to be in connection with a missile test taking place later in May.

North Korea tested a long-range missile from a base near the port of Kimchaek last month, causing International concern and strong reproach from the United Nations.
