A South Korean Navy patrol boat sank after a collision with a larger fishing boat off the southern island of Jeju late Wednesday, leaving at least two sailors missing, according to news reports from South Korea.
Yonhap news agency reported the navy patrol boat was on a training mission when the collision occurred just before 11 p.m. local time. It said two sailors were missing.
South Koreaâ€™s YTN news website said one sailor was killed and two were missing. Search missions were under way but high seas were hampering the effort, according to the YTN report.
