  • South Korean troops started a live-fire drill exercise on the border island which attacked by North Korea last month, the defence ministry said, despite threats by North Korea to hit back.

    "The drill has started," a ministry spokesman told AFP.

    The sound of artillery started and it's similar drill on Yeonpyeong on November 23, the North fired some 170 shells onto or around the island, killing four people including civilians and damaging dozens of homes.

    It had threatened even deadlier retaliation if this week's drill went ahead, saying South Korean shells from such exercises regularly land in its waters.
