Navy chief: US helps salvage ship after explosion

The U.S. Navy is helping the South Korean military raise and examine the South Korean frigate that sank after a mysterious explosion last month.
At least 38 South Korean sailors died.
Navy Secretary Ray Mabus says the United States is contributing expertise and equipment to the salvage effort. But he would not divulge exactly what the Navy is doing to help determine the cause of the blast, saying some of the information is classified.
Mabus declined to say what he thinks should happen if it turns out that North Korea sank the ship. North Korea has denied involvement.
