    The USS Pueblo, captured off the coast of North Korea in 1968, is a symbol of the deep mistrust between North Korea and the United States.
    It was, say the North Koreans, a spy boat monitoring ship movements and military transmission from just off the coast.
    Despite unexpected progress at talks on North Korea's nuclear programme and talk from US president George Bush of a formal end to the Korean War, the Pueblo remains a symbol of the tense relations between Pyongyang and Washington.
