  • The border conflict between South Korea and North Korea still complicated in finding way. 

    On Wednesday 3rd November 2010, South Korea's navy fired warning shots to drive back a North Korean boat which was fishing illegally in southern waters amid high tension along the Yellow Sea border, military officials said.

    The boat retreated to its side about two hours and 40 minutes after it had intruded across the disputed border, the Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement.
    A South Korean navy boat fired 10 warning shots from a machine gun after broadcasting three verbal warnings, it said. There's no one was reported hurt or kill.

    The North's vessel appeared to have been unable to move for a time because the tide was low, the military said.

    The intrusion came at a sensitive time, with the South's military and police on high alert before next week's Group of 20 summit in Seoul.

    "The intrusion came as our troops have been placed on top alert off the west coast," a defence ministry spokesman said.
