Search for missing sailors still going

leave a comment »

After rescuing 58 sailors of the 104 on board the South Korean Naval ship that sank last week, authorities have not found any signs of life near the site of the explosion. However, it may be possible that the missing sailors found a cave of some sort for refuge so authorities continuing to search.

Last week, an explosion brought down the ship near the island of Baengyeong. Since the island is so close to the North Korean shore, an attack was speculated, however South Korean authorities have since dismissed that theory. The radar had not shown an signs of torpedo before the blast.

Officials are now speculating that an old North Korean sea mine from the 50s might have been the culprit. While they were removed in 1953, it is not likely that 100% of them were removed due to the difficulty in retrieving the thousands that were placed. Previously mines have been found in 1959 and then another in 1984.
