BBC News - South Korea vows to retaliate over warship sinking

South Korea's defence minister has said those responsible for the deaths of 46 sailors on board a warship that sank after an explosion must 'pay a price'.

Kim Tae-young promised 'punitive action' against 'the perpetrators who killed our soldiers.'

He did not specify what form this could take. South Korea has not directly blamed North Korea - and Pyongyang has denied any role.

The Cheonan sank after a 'close-range' blast that split it in two.

Last month, a mass funeral was held for the 46 sailors, including six whose bodies have not been recovered.

Many South Koreans believe North Korea sank the ship, correspondents say.
