North and South Korea exchange gunfire at border
North Korea fired multiple gunshots towards the South in the Demilitarized Zone dividing the peninsula on Sunday, prompting South Korean troops to fire back, Seoul’s military said.
A South Korean guard post was hit by several shots from the North, the joint chiefs of staff said in a statement, adding no casualties were reported on the South’s side.
“Our military responded with two rounds of gunfire and a warning announcement according to our manual,” Seoul said. (AFP)
