A North Korean sailor, 25 years of age, was found dead on Monday evening in the Mauritian port. A bloody fight took place on 13 January, involving Indonesian and North Korean sailors. It appears that fifty Indonesian sailors had lynched against him.
 
The latter was beaten to the skull with iron bars, clubs, hammers and stones, as highlighted in the newspaper L'Express. Two other North Korean sailors and Indonesian are seriously injured in the violent struggle.
 
An autopsy on the North Korean sailor revealed that his death was due to a fracture of skull. He suffered injuries all over his body.

The investigation is being conducted by detectives of the criminal police of the port and those of the Major Crimes Investigation Team (MCIT). The crew members of two trawlers are kept on board to avoid any confrontation. Services of interpreters were hired by the police to properly conduct the investigation. The remains of the sailor was repatriated by a representative of the shipping company.
