Daily Kor for April 18, 2010

It's a slow, Yonhap-dominated news weekend, which is a good time to highlight updates to one of yesterday's stories, North Korea's denial it was involved in the sinking of the Chonan. Apparently, I was a little too fast with the story, and it took a while for the major media to catch up. So now we have links from John Glionna of the Los Angeles Times, as well as ReutersWaPoAPUPIAFPWSJBloombergBBCYonhap, the Korea HeraldChosun Ilbo, and the Korea Times. Meanwhile, here's the rest of the news.

  2. Pyongyang dismisses Seoul-proposed nuclear deal as "absurd" (Yonhap)
  3. Tattered stern of sunken Chonan arrives in home port of P'yŏngt'aek (Yonhap)
  4. One dead and three missing in Lynx helicopter crash off Chindo Island (Joongang Daily)
