NKorea plans live-fire drills
(04-29 10:49)

North Korea has notified rival South Korea that it plans a live-fire drill near the countries' disputed western sea boundary.
South Korean Defense Ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok said Tuesday that military officials will closely monitor the drills.
Both Koreas regularly conduct artillery drills in the Yellow Sea. North Korea disputes the so-called Northern Limit Line drawn close to its shores at the end of the 1950-53 Korean War. North Korea says it should run farther south.
Ill-will has steadily risen between the rivals after a period of easing tensions earlier this year that saw emotional family reunions of war-divided Koreans.
