Heroin ship set to be sunk

THE North Korean ship used in an attempt to smuggle 150kg of heroin into Australia was last night moved out of Sydney Harbour in preparation for its sinking.

Despite at least one offer to buy the Pong Su, the Australian Federal Police has ordered the 743-tonne vessel, which has cost $2500 a day to maintain since its capture three years ago, be destroyed.

The Australian reports.
