Via AP See (

South Korea's defense minister says North Korea may have intentionally floated a mine to damage a naval ship that exploded and sank this week.

While the cause of the explosion is unknown, Defense Minister Kim Tae-young told lawmakers in Seoul on Monday that rival North Korea may have floated a mine toward the ship. He also said the explosion could have been caused by a mine placed during the Korean War.

South Korean officials had earlier said they did not believe the North was behind the explosion.
