Chinese state media say a North Korean boat has hijacked three Chinese fishing vessels with twenty-nine people on board, and payment is being demanded by today (Thursday) for their release.

According to the Chinese reports, the fishing boats were seized by armed men last week in Chinese waters in the Yellow Sea, and were taken to North Korean waters.

It isn't clear whether North Korean security forces were involved. China is North Korea's main ally and supplier of aid.

Korea Utara "rampas" kapal nelayan Cina

Media resmi Cina mengatakan perahu Korea Utara membajak kapal Cina yang mengangkut 29 orang, dan tuntutan tebusan diminta hari ini (Kamis) untuk pembebasan mereka.

Menurut laporan-laporan Cina, perahu nelayan itu dirampas oleh orang-orang bersenjata pekan lalu di Laut Kuning, wilayah perairan Cina dan kemudian dibawa ke perairan Korea Utara.

Tidak jelas apakah pasukan keamanan Korea Utara terlibat. Cina adalah sekutu dan penyumbang terbesar bagi Korea Utara.

Mr Crace said it was nice to feel useful in old age.

Pria 83 tahun menyumbang ginjal

Seorang pria berusia 83 tahun mencetak sejarah medis di Inggris sebagai donatur ginjal tertua di negara itu.

Nicholas Crace mengatakan dia mulai menjajagi kemungkinan menjadi donatur setelah kematian istrinya.

Para dokter melakukan operasi setelah mengetahui ginjal-ginjalnya berfungsi baik seperti layaknya ginjal manusia usia 40-an tahun.

Crace mengatakan senang merasa berguna pada usia lanjut.
