On this day in 1968, North Korea seized the U.S. Navy ship Pueblo, charging it had intruded into the nation’s territorial waters on a
spying mission. The crew was released 11 months later.

The Pueblo’s mission began in early January, 1968, when the crew
set off from the U.S. Navy base on Yokosuka, Japan with orders to conduct surveillance on Soviet Navy and North Korean signal and electronic intelligence activity.

Pueblo, is still being held by North Korea today, officially remains
a
commissioned vessel of the United States Navy. Since early 2013,
the ship has been
moored along the Potong River in Pyongyang, and       
used there as a museum ship at the Pyongyang Victorious War
Museum
.
