A Thai court has ordered the crew of a cargo plane transporting weapons from North Korea to remain in jail for 12 more days.

The five crew members, consisting of one Belarus national and four Kazakh nationals, were arrested in mid-December after their cargo plane was seized during a stop in Bangkok.

The plane was carrying 35 tons of heavy weapons, including explosives and rocket-propelled grenades. A lawyer for the crew members says they believed they were transporting oil drilling equipment.
