North Korea fired more than 80 shells into the sea near its disputed maritime border with South Korea on Wednesday, officials said, sparking an artillery exchange which fuelled tensions on the peninsula.
The communist state’s land batteries lobbed about 30 shells in the morning and more than 50 in the afternoon, according to Seoul’s Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Ignoring a strong protest from the South, the North said it had every right to carry out an annual live fire drill and would continue the exercise. A day earlier it had declared two “no sail” zones in the area.
The morning barrage lasted more than one hour, Seoul officials said, and South Korean Marines stationed on a nearby island responded with about 100 warning cannon shots. There were no casualties.
