North, South Korea Naval Patrol Boats Exchange Fire

(AFP) North and South Korean naval patrol boats briefly exchanged fire Tuesday near their disputed maritime border, according to the South’s defence ministry which said the North’s vessel had violated the boundary.

The incident took place around 9:50 am (0050 GMT) near the South Korean border island of Yeonpyeong, when the North patrol boat crossed into the South’s water, a ministry spokesman said.
