    Default Panama Stops North Korean Ship for Drugs, Finds Cuban Missile Instead

    Drug enforcement officials stopped a North Korean vessel on its way through the Panama Canal Monday, only to find sophisticated missile material "hidden in a consignment of sugar."


    Suspicion was aroused when the ship's North Korean captain tried to kill himself and his 35-man crew began to riot, attempting to "sabotage the search"—a noticeable break from the international weapon transporters keep it casual code.


    President Ricardo Martinelli issued a stern warning that the Panama Canal was not open to this kind of monkey business:

    "The world needs to sit up and take note: you cannot go around shipping undeclared weapons of war through the Panama Canal," he told Radio Panama listeners.

    Specialists may need as long as a week to examine the cargo, which appeared to include missiles. But the photo tweeted by Martinelli is a pretty strange crystallization of sugar:

    According to the Associated Press, the ship, named Chong Chon Gang, was traveling to North Korea from Cuba, "a rare ally of also-isolated Pyongyang."

    Does Cuba at this point have any knowledge of (or components of) advanced missile systems that would actually be useful to North Korea? In either an operational or research capacity?
