S Korea vows action over sinking

Seoul continues to investigate why naval vessel sank with the loss of 46 lives.

    Lee Myung-bak, the president of South Korea, has pledged to take strong action against those responsible for the sinking of a warship last month.

    The vessel went down in disputed waters, where as recently as January there were exchanges of gunfire between the two navies, with the loss of 46 lives. 

    Seoul has not openly blamed Pyongyang for the incident, but there has been speculation that it could have been caused by a torpedo or a mine left over from the war between the two neighbours.
