North Korea fires artillery in our general direction

Yonhap is reporting that North Korea fired artillery shells that landed near the isolated ROK island of Paengnyŏngo (Baengnyeongdo), falling into the sea just inside what South Korea considers North Korean waters. The South Korean side fired warning shots in response. (Fox News also has the story.)

This comes as North Korea may be preparing for a missile attack and has declared a massive no-sail zone. It also is a sign why the beautiful Paengnyŏngdo has so much trouble developing its eco-tourism industry.
