UNITED NATIONS — Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon joined the United States Monday in ratcheting up pressure on North Korea by recommending UN Security Council action for a torpedo attack that killed 46 South Korean sailors.

The South Korean UN chief called the evidence "overwhelming and deeply troubling" that Pyongyang was responsible for the March 26 sinking of the Cheonan in the Yellow Sea off the west coast.

"Such an unacceptable act by the DPRK runs counter to international efforts to promote peace and stability in the region," Ban said.
