Capture of the U.S.S. Pueblo by North Korea

A North Korean patrol boat captures the U.S.S. Pueblo, an intelligence-gathering vessel, killing one American serviceman and taking the rest of the crew of 82 as hostages. Accused of espionage and violating a twelve-mile territorial limit, the crew will not be returned for nearly a year.
