South Korea wants U.N. action over warship sinking

South Korea has formally asked the U.N. Security Council for action over what it says was North Korea's sinking of one of its warships in March, the Mexico U.N. mission said.

A letter from South Korea arrived in the offices of Mexico, which holds the current council presidency.

Ambassador Claude Heller, Security Council president from Mexico, said Korea delivered a letter requesting the body take action.

He said the letter will be circulated to council members and the council will respond appropriately after consulting with other members.

South Korea investigated the incident and says a North Korean mini-sub fired torpedoes at the Cheonan naval ship and killed 46 people. North Korea denies it attacked the vessel and called the probe a farce.

      please shut your mouth. u don't understand how SK people feel like now. U don't even know when NK will attack us, and most of the people should stay in fear. But I don't care what u say cuz u guys don't know whats happening, and to tell u, your president, but also SK's helper, Mr. Barack Obama said that he would help us and always stay next to us. say things if u know about the event carefully lol I want other guys to shut up too lol.

    I think SK should not say anything more about it... they should send a crack SK team into NK to blow up 4 of thier ships in the harbor. And then deny, deny, deny...just like NK is doing now.
