N. Korea to conduct firing drills near S. Korea border

The North Korean military will again fire live rounds into two regions near a disputed sea border with South Korea, the South Korean defense ministry said Tuesday. The isolated nation conducted a similar test in late March, shooting over 500 artillery rounds near the Northern Limit Line, which is generally recognized as the ocean border between the two countries since the end of the Korean War in 1953. At least 100 of the artillery rounds landed on the South Korean side of the water, prompting the South to return fire into North Korean waters.
