SEOUL, South Korea — South Korea's army says three soldiers have died and another is unconscious after their boat capsized during a drill.
An army official says that eight soldiers were on board when their small boat turned over Wednesday in a river in Yeoju, some 65 miles (105 kilometres) southeast of Seoul.
The official says four other soldiers are in good condition. The army official refused to be identified, saying he wasn't authorized to speak to the media.
The accident comes five days after a South Korean spy plane crashed during routine training and its two pilots were killed.
Also last week, a South Korean navy ship sank after colliding with a larger fishing boat in waters near the southern resort island of Jeju. One died and two are still missing.
