The salvaged remains of the Republic of Korea Navy ship Cheonan on display in a memorial museum in Pyeongtaek. The vessel sank on 26 March 2010 off the country’s west coast near Baengnyeong Island in the Yellow Sea, killing 46 of 104 seamen. The cause of the sinking remains in dispute, but an investigation carried out by a team of international experts from South Korea, the US, the UK, Canada, Australia, and Sweden concluded on 20 May 2010 that the warship had been sunk by a North Korean torpedo fired by a midget submarine.
