Korea launches advanced patrol boat to deter North

SEOUL -- South Korea’s navy on Wednesday launched an advanced patrol boat named after a victim of a 2002 clash with North Korea, and said the new craft “can deter any enemy provocation” at sea.

The 440-tonne Yoon Young-Ha, commissioned at a southern naval base at Jinhae, is the first of around 20 patrol boats to be delivered by 2015.

It is named after a South Korean patrol boat commander who was killed in a 2002 clash with the North’s boats in the Yellow Sea.
