The patrol boat came around 900 meters inside the South’s side of the disputed Yellow Sea border shortly after midday (03:00 GMT), Seoul’s Defence Ministry said.

One of our naval vessels gave a verbal warning by loudspeaker and then fired six warning rounds,” a spokesman said. The North Korean ship returned across the border minutes later.

It was the first such boundary violation in four months, according to Seoul.
