North Korea bans ships from coastal waters

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - Japan's coast guard says North Korea
has warned maritime traffic away from the country's east coast, and
that's being seen as one more sign that another missile launch is
coming.
Japan's coast guard says it picked up a North Korean radio
signal banning ships from June 10-30. South Korean media have
reported that the North is planning to fire several medium-range
missiles.
Meanwhile, Pyongyang's top court handed down 12 year prison
sentences to two detained U.S. journalists, convicting them of
unspecified hostility toward the country and illegal border
crossing.
The verdict came as the U.S. tries to muster international
support for cutting off North Korean shipments that may be carrying
nuclear technology or other weapons.
A North Korean newspaper reports today that the country will
give a "super hard-line" response to any sanctions.
