‘ SOUTH KOREA MILITARY FIRE DRILL NEAR DISPUTED ISLANDS DENOUNCED BY PYONGYANG ‘

#AceWorldNews – SOUTH KOREA – Nov.21 – South Korea staged a live-fire military drill on Friday near its disputed Yellow Sea border with North Korea, despite warnings from Pyongyang, AFP said.

The maneuvers were held on two front-line islands.

One of them was shelled by North Korea on November 23, 2010, killing four people.

The live-fire exercise wrapped up a two-week annual military drill. It involved more than 300,000 troops across South Korea and was denounced by the North as a provocation.
