South Korea has renewed its call on the Democratic People's Republic of Korea to release the crew of a fishing boat it's holding.
Seoul's Unification Ministry says South Korea's Red Cross has sent a message north of the border through a military hotline. Pyongyang confirmed a day ago that it is holding the crew for questioning. Four South Koreans and three Chinese were aboard the 41-ton vessel.
Lee Jong-Joo, Spokeswoman, S. Korean Unification Ministry, said, "The South Korean Red Cross once again insists that the DPRK sends back our crew and the fishing boat as soon as possible according to international law, custom and humanitarianism. The message was sent to the DPRK a little after 10 a.m. Friday, and the DPRK received the message without any special comment."
