Live Fire Erupts Between North, South Korea

Live fire was exchanged between North Korea and South Korea on Monday, after a North Korean maritime drill strayed into South Korean waters. The semi-official South Korean news agency Yonhap reported that the North had begun the drill just after 12:15 pm local time.

The Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) confirmed that North Korean artillery shells landed in South Korean waters, and that the South responded with live fire.
