Suspicious North Korean ship turned back by U.S. Navy

U.S. interrupts suspected missile parts shipment: A North Korean ship suspected to have had an illegal shipment of missile parts aboard was turned back by the U.S. Navy nearly two weeks ago. They requested to inspect the ship, but the North Koreans refused and ended up returning home amidst considerable diplomatic pressure.

In this case, the ship was bound for Burma (Myanmar). source
