Two expensive yachts for Kim Jong II...

According to a trusted source, the Italian government seized two yacht builts by the Italian shipyard Azimut Benetti.

The yachts were bound for North Korea and were seized because they violated European Union and international rules based on UN resolutions against exporting luxury goods to this country.

The yachts (see the Azimut 105 picture) , worth 13 million euros (18.5 million dollars), were destined for Kim Jong II, the Korean leader. However, Azimut-Benedetti said the Italian authorities had "recently" returned the yachts to the company's possession.
