SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - A news report says a number of South Korean sailors died when their military ship sank off an island not far from North Korea.
South Korea's Yonhap news agency cited an unidentified naval official early Saturday as saying there were some deaths. The military says it cannot confirm the report but says 58 of the 104 crew members on board the ship that sank late Friday were safe.
