The smoking gun


The torpedo parts salvaged from the Yellow Sea are unveiled during a press conference at the Defense Ministry in Seoul on May 20. South Korea accused North Korea of firing a torpedo that sank a naval warship on March 26, killing 46 sailors in the country’s worst military disaster since the Korean War. Pyongyang, meanwhile, continued its steadfast denials of involvement in the sinking and said it would send its own investigators to conduct a probe, while warning that any punishment against the North would spark war.

5월20일 서울 국방부에서 열린 기자회견에서 서해에서 수거한 어뢰 부품들이 공개됐다. 남한은 3월26일 어뢰 공격으로 초계함을 침몰시킨 것은 북한의 소행이라고 발표했다. 초계함 침몰은 한국전쟁 이후 최악의 군사참변이었으며 장병 46명이 사망했다. 한편, 북한은 변함없이 개입사실을 부인하면서 북측 조사관들을 남측에 보내겠다고 말했고, 북한에 대한 어떠한 제재도 전쟁을 초래할 것이라고 경고했다. [AP]
