S. Korea remembers fallen soldiers on third anniversary of warship sinking

South Korea on Tuesday mourned the loss of 46 sailors who were killed in the sinking of the Cheonan warship in a torpedo attack by North Korea three years ago, with people across the country paying respects to those who perished and vowing to remember their sacrifices.

The 1,200-ton Cheonan warship exploded and sank in the Yellow Sea on the night of March 26, 2010, killing 46 sailors. A South Korean-led international investigation found that North Korea torpedoed the ship, though Pyongyang denied its involvement.
