North Korea's party line on the sinking of South Korean ship

Open Radio for North Korea reports that North Korean authorities are portraying the sinking of the South Korean Navy corvette Cheonan as a self-inflicted disaster.

Quoting North Korean sources, Open Radio the radio station operated by defectors, quotes the regime saying, "A warship of the puppet South Korean Navy, engaged in an aggressive war exercise along with the United States, was buried in the West Sea."

It said this was a "self-inflicted drama" by "hostile forces" bent on proving "the righteousness of their hostile policy" toward North Korea.

It added this was part of a broader plot by the South Korean government to keep the situation on the Korean Peninsula insecure.
