France inspects North Korean ship in Indian Ocean territory

French customs officers are inspecting a North Korean ship on an Indian Ocean island as part of UN measures prompted by North Korea's nuclear test, the Foreign Ministry said today.

``The customs administration is currently proceeding with a complete and thorough inspection of merchandise and personnel on a North Korean ship on a stopover in Mayotte,'' Foreign Ministry spokesman Jean-Baptiste Mattei told a briefing.

Mayotte is a French-administered island between Mozambique and Madagascar.
