SOUTH KOREA - South Korean Agriculture Ministry said Monday that blood samples from pigs on South Korean southern Jeju Island have tested positive for cholera antibodies, prompting Japan to temporarily suspend pork imports from South Korea. "The suspension of quarantine inspection for Jeju pork went into effect this morning after Seoul notified Tokyo," said Park Hyun-chool, director general of the ministry's Livestock Bureau.
