South Korea Fires Warning Shots at North Border Patrol

(AFP) South Korean troops fired warning shots Monday as a North Korean patrol approached the heavily fortified border inside the so-called Demilitarised Zone (DMZ) that separates the two rivals.

There was no exchange of fire and the North Korean patrol eventually moved away from the military demarcation line, a defence ministry spokesman said.

There have been a series of minor skirmishes, involving exchanges of fire but no casualties, along the inter-Korean land and sea borders in recent months.

The spokesman said the latest incident occurred around 9:40am (0040 GMT), when around 10 North Korean soldiers were observed moving towards the border line.
