Fidel Castro claims US sank South Korean warship

HAVANA: US navy commandos sank a South Korean warship in March in order to blame North Korea, raise tensions and convince Japan to keep US forces in Okinawa, Cuban former president Fidel Castro wrote in an editorial on Friday.
Castro, who based his information on press reports, blasted Washington's "cynicism" and "lack of scruples" in the incident.
According to Castro, US Navy SEALS torpedoed South Korea's Cheonan corvette in a bid by Washington to sway Japan to allow a US military base to remain on Okinawa island.
Castro, 83 and convalescing away from government since 2006, writes regular columns for Cuban media commenting on world events.
