Kim Young-sun, wearing the traditional South Korean costume Han Bok, offers flowers for her fallen husband Min Kyoung-sung on the eve of the Memorial Day observance Friday June 5, 2009 at the National Cemetery in Seoul, South Korea. South Korea says a North Korean patrol boat entered its waters around their disputed maritime border but backed off after nearly an hour following repeated warnings. The naval standoff came amid concerns that the North might try to provoke an armed clash in the area , the scene of deadly naval skirmishes in 1999 and 2002 , to stoke tensions that were already running high after Pyongyang’s nuclear test and a barrage of missile launches last week.
