A South Korean naval ship with 104 on board was sinking today after a suspected torpedo attack by North Korea.

The 1,500-tonne vessel is going down near Baengnyeong island, with rescue crews fearing many sailors have died.

In apparent retaliation, the South Korean navy shot at an unidentified ship in the direction of North Korea.

The incident is viewed as a potential flashpoint which could plunge the two countries into all-out conflict.
