South And North Korea Exchange Fire At Western Edge Of Border [VIDEO]

South Korea on Thursday fired dozens of shells toward North Korea in response to the North’s apparent artillery attack on the South’s propaganda loudspeakers in the western border, the Defense Ministry said.

The exchanges further raised military tensions between the two Koreas which have flared in the wake of the North’s Aug. 4 land mine attack.

“At around 3:52 p.m., we detected what is presumed to be a trajectory of North Korea’s rocket. We are still analyzing it and there is no damage to our loudspeakers,” Seoul’s Defense Ministry said in a press release.
