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

President Moon Jae-in (R) listens to a bereaved family member during a ceremony at a national cemetery in the central city of Daejeon on March 27, 2020, 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 waters near the western inter-Korean maritime border in the Yellow Sea, resulting in the deaths of 46 crewmen. Since 2016, the government has designated the fourth Friday of March as the commemoration day for them. (Yonhap)
