In clear calm weather today a South Korean Ferry Boat has gone down with as many as 300 children aboard. People aboard the ship reported a loud noise, and a shudder as the ship listed and when down.
South Korean officials are still in a search and rescue mode, and are not talking about the disasters cause. Some say the ferry could have hit a rock or another ship. Yet it was in heavily used shipping channels, and no other ship was seen in the vicinity.
On April 17, 2010 a North Korean submarine torpedoed a South Korean warship. 46 sailors were lost in that attack.
