(The Hague)  --  The prosecutor of the International Criminal Court is looking into whether North Korea has committed war crimes.  The prosecutor is examining two incidents: North Korea's recent shelling of a South Korean island and the sinking of a South Korean warship in March.  Four people were killed in the artillery strikes, while dozens of South Korean sailors were killed when the warship was sunk.  An investigation determined the ship was hit by the shockwave from a North Korean torpedo.  North Korea has denied involvement in the downing of the ship.  It says the recent artillery strikes were in retaliation to South Korean fire.
