South Korea holds funeral for sailors killed in sinking

South Korea has held an official funeral for the 46 sailors who died when their warship sank last month.

The ceremony at a naval base in Pyeongtaek, was the culmination of five days of official mourning for those who lost their lives.

Investigators say the corvette Cheonan sank following a "close-range" blast which split the ship in two.
