A U.S. court has ordered North Korea to pay damages to the crew and family of the spy ship U.S.S. Pueblo, who were tortured and mistreated for 11 months in 1968 after being captured by the North Korean navy.

The Washington federal court said that the surviving members of the crew and families of those now dead are owed compensatory damages for confinement and suffering of $1.15 billion and doubled that for punitive damages against Pyongyang.

In late 2017 the Trump administration officially declared North Korea a sponsor of terror.
