North Korea's DailyNK Newspaper Reports that Party Official Bragging about North's Responsibility for Sinking South Korean Warship

Changchun, China -- A North Korean Party cadre has announced that his country was responsible for the sinking of an unnamed South Korean vessel presumed to be the Cheonan, a source from Onsung in North Hamkyung Province reported to The Daily NK on Monday.

The Daily NK reported that the party official didn’t specifically mention the Cheonan but members of the audience believed the rumor of a North Korean attack had been confirmed.

Another source told The Daily NK that “most” North Koreans thought their country’s navy sank the Cheonan and that their government wasn’t trying to mute rumors of its involvement.
