Melbourne, May 6 (ANI): South Korean President Lee Myung-Bak has hinted that North Korea was involved in the sinking of the Cheonan on March 26, which cost 46 lives, and promised a "resolute" response.

Myung-Bak's hint comes in the wake of investigators revealing the discovery of explosive traces on the funnel of the South Korean naval ship.

"It has been confirmed that the explosive came from a torpedo," news.com.au quoted the team member, as saying.

Detailed analysis of salvaged aluminium fragments also confirmed they are from a torpedo, the individual said.

"This type of aluminium is not in use in this country. As long as the torpedo was not ours, there is only one country that may attack a South Korean navy vessel," the team member reportedly said without naming North Korea. (ANI)
