Clinton: World must act on SKorean ship sinking

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says the world has a duty to respond to sinking of a South Korean warship that has been blamed on North Korea.

After talks with South Korean leaders today, Clinton told reporters the attack, which killed 46 sailors, was an "unacceptable provocation" by the North and the "international community has a responsibility and a duty to respond."

Clinton is spending just a few hours in Seoul discussing possible international responses to the crisis. The North denies it was responsible and has threatened to retaliate if action is taken against it.

Clinton touched down in the South Korean capital earlier today after intense discussions on the deteriorating situation with Chinese officials in Beijing.
