ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of a U.S. federal judge to enter a $65 million judgment against North Korea in relation to its Cold War seizure of U.S. ship (USS) Pueblo on January 23, 1968. North Korean patrol boats pursued the spy ship, which was monitoring electronic transmissions in the Tsushima Straits, and killed one sailor prior to boarding Pueblo. Eighty-two crewmen were starved and tortured by North Korea for 11 months. The imprisoned crewmen were released when the U.S. issued a formal apology.
