South Korea fired artillery and dropped bombs in military exercises off the west coast of the divided peninsula today, with tensions running high in the area.

The drills aim to help the military detect incursions by the North’s submarines after a team of international investigators said a North Korean torpedo sank a South Korean warship in March.

The navy said 10 vessels, including a destroyer, fired guns and launched anti-submarine bombs south of the capital, Seoul, in a one-day exercise.

The exercises were conducted far from the disputed sea border with North Korea in the Yellow Sea, Yonhap news agency reported, citing military officials.

Pyongyang, which denies any involvement in the sinking of the Cheonan, had earlier said such military exercises would drive the tense situation to the brink of war, although it has often issued such warnings before such drills.
