UN sanctions experts will go to Panama soon to investigate a North Korean ship that was intercepted carrying weapons, a US diplomat said Thursday. The vessel set out from Cuba and was trying to enter the Panama Canal when it was stopped by an anti-narcotics patrol, which later found the weapons concealed beneath several tonnes of sugar.
