One Seoul-based monitoring agency reports today that the North's leader had ordered the 1.2 million-member military to get ready for combat.
South Korea blames the North for a March 26 torpedo strike that
sank the warship Cheonan and killed 46 sailors.

torpedo from a North Korean submarine tore apart the South Korean ship.
