Korean War Era Mine Suspected In Sinking Of South Korean Naval Ship

Via Telegraph:
A mine dating back to the 1950-53 Korean War might have been responsible for the sinking of a South Korean naval patrol ship last weekend, according to the country’s defence minister. His explanation came as hopes of finding 46 missing South Korean alive faded further after navy divers finally reached the upturned hull of the sunken ship but reported no signs of life within. The 1,200-tonne corvett Cheonan sank on Friday night in the Yellow Sea along a disputed sea border with North Korea, sparking fears that Pyongyang had attacked the ship and temporarily sending shares lower in New York.
