Twenty-nine Chinese fishermen have been kidnapped at sea by unidentified North Koreans who have demanded 1.2 million yuan ($190,000) in ransom, fellow sailors and media said Thursday.
The men were fishing in three separate vessels on May 8 when gunmen boarded their boats and forcibly took them over, locking up those on board, said a boat owner surnamed Sun who has been in touch with the captives.

There is no way the North Korean gov't would allow this to take place without their involvement.

But they wouldn't just leave Chinese nationals to it, would they? I know that might sound naive when talking about a government like China's, but... surely they'd at least pretend to try and get their nationals back?
