South Korea warns of “enormous retaliation” against North Korea

North fires on island near disputed sea border, killing two marines


South Korean president Lee Myung-bak said Tuesday that North Korea’s “indiscriminate attack on civilians can never be tolerated,” the Toronto Star reports. Earlier in the day, North Korea fired dozens of rounds of artillery at an island near the disputed sea border with South Korea, killing two South Korean marines, and injuring 16 more. South Korea returned fire and the entire exchange lasted about one hour. The attack occurred a day after the South Korean military conducted exercises in the area‹which North Korea’s military demanded they bring to an end early Tuesday.
