S.Korea to take ship case to Security Council

South Korea will take the case of its sunken naval vessel to the U.N. Security Council, the presidential office said on Sunday, after it accused North Korea of torpedoing the ship.

South Korea's President Lee Myung-bak will deliver a speech about the incident on Monday, presidential spokesman Lee Dong-kwan said.

"The president will present frameworks of measures, one about our own steps and the other about measures through international cooperation ... He will also mention a plan to bring the case to the U.N. Security Council," said Lee.

Last week, Seoul released the findings of a report which concluded that a North Korean submarine had "fired a torpedo" that sank the Cheonan corvette, killing 46 sailors. The North has denied the accusation.
