Owner Yu Xuejun, who was not on board the boat when it was seized on 5 May, wrote on his microblog that his captain called him at 3.50am to say the crew and boat were set free and that they were on their way home.

On Sunday, after Yu had sent out increasingly desperate distress messages on his microblog over the weekend, Beijing revealed that the boat had been seized on May 5.

Chinese state media then began reporting on the incident, saying China was demanding that North Korea release the men.
Yu said on his microblog on Tuesday that he had been unable to pay any ransom and thanked China's foreign ministry for negotiating on his behalf. ...
