Naval Skirmish in Yellow Sea Sinks RoK Patrol Boat?

[ 0 ] March 26, 2010 |

Details are extremely sketchy, but it looks as if a skirmish in the Yellow Sea may have resulted in the sinking of a South Korean patrol boat with 104 aboard. The latest report indicated that 58 of the sailors had been picked up as of an hour and a half ago. See also CDR Salamander and Bubblehead. If there are still at least 46 sailors unaccounted for after a few hours in the water, this is a very serious problem; there have been skirmishes in this area for a while, but it will be very hard for the South Koreans to ignore a major loss of life and the loss of a significant naval unit.
