South Korean Ship ‘Hit By North Korean Torpedo’ -- Times Online

My Comment: It is too early to publicize any definite conclusions on what happen to the South Korean warship Cheonan. According to what I have been told, no one has found any shrapnel from a torpedo or a mine at the scene .... and any final report will take almost a year to complete. Until then .... any news announcement will just be speculation and guess work.
