North Korea says naval blockade would be 'act of war'

South Korea ended this year as the world's 14th-ranked team in women's football, according to FIFA on Friday.

After North Korea's latest nuclear test in September, the United States sought the UN's consent to interdict maritime traffic coming in and out of North Korea, but it did not get accepted in the UN resolution that passed unanimously.
