AMSTERDAM (AP) - The prosecutor of the International Criminal Court says he has opened an investigation into possible war crimes by North Korea.

The prosecutor says his office is looking at the Nov. 23 shelling of Yeonpyeong Island and the sinking of South Korean warship the Cheonan in March.

South Korea in 2002 signed the international treaty that created the war crimes court. The prosecutor said in a statement Monday that gives the court jurisdiction over crimes committed on South Korean territory.
