A boat suspected of being from North Korea with several bodies was found on a small island in northern Japan, the Japanese Coast Guard said.
The wrecked boat that had the decomposing bodies was found on Sado Island in Niigata prefecture on Friday, and the bodies were found on Saturday, a coast guard official said.
Found on the boats were three bodies with heads, two heads without bodies and two bodies without heads. It's officially counted as seven bodies because it is unclear whether the bodies and heads came from the same people, the official said.
