A South Korean navy ship with more than 100 on board has sunk in the Yellow Sea near North Korea. The ship was patrolling southwest of the island around 9:45 p.m. when the explosion took place, a military official told KBS. The reason for the incident remains unclear, though South Korea’s YTN TV network said the government was investigating whether the sinking was due to a torpedo attack by the North.
It has been reported that at least 58 sailors had been rescued, though many are feared dead.
Please keep the crew members in your thoughts and prayers.
