A South Korean warship was destroyed by an elite North Korean suicide squad of

according to military intelligence reports.

The attack on the 1,220-ton Cheonan, which sank on March 26 with the loss of
46 of its 104 crew, was carried out in retaliation for a skirmish between
warships of the two nations' navies in November of last year, South Korea
claims.


The South Korean government has refused to comment officially on the reports
but Defence Minister Kim Tae Young told a parliamentary session that the
military believed that the sinking was a deliberate act by North Korea.


Officials in military intelligence say they warned the government earlier this
year that North Korea was preparing a suicide-squad submarine attack on a
South Korean ship.


"North Korean submarines are all armed with heavy torpedoes with 200kg
warheads," the source said.
