North Korea unveiling its greatest Cold War prize: captured US Navy spy ship USS Pueblo

North Korea is expected to unveil its greatest Cold War prize this week: the USS Pueblo, a U.S. Navy spy ship it captured in 1968.

The ship was seized off North Korea's east coast, and its crew imprisoned for 11 months. Former crew members in the U.S. have long pushed for its return. Now it will become the centerpiece of a renovated war museum in Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea.

The unveiling is one of several events marking the 60th anniversary of the end of the Korean War. An armistice signed on July 27, 1953, ended the fighting.
