S. Korea marks memorial day for fallen soldiers in Yellow Sea

Prime Minister Lee Nak-yon and other participants salute the national flag during a ceremony at the national cemetery in the central city of Daejeon on March 22, 2019, to pay tribute to soldiers who died in three major clashes with North Korea in the Yellow Sea, including the 2010 sinking of the Cheonan warship. The South Korean corvette sank after it was hit by a North Korean torpedo in seas near the western inter-Korean maritime border in the Yellow Sea, resulting in the deaths of 46 crewmen. The government has designated the fourth Friday of March as the commemoration day for them. (Yonhap)
