    In addition it said intelligence gathered with allies, the United States, Britain and Australia, showed North Korean submarines were likely in operation near the scene of the sinking.

    "Based on all such relevant facts and classified analysis, we have reached the clear conclusion that Cheonan was sunk as a result of an external underwater explosion caused by a torpedo made in North Korea," the report said.
