North Korea Fires Artillery Shells in Training Drill After Attacking Yeonpyeong

North Korea was estimated to have fired about 20 shells as part of a training exercise on Friday. Blasts were heard several times in Yeonpyeong from the inland area of Gaemori, North Korea, between 12:20 p.m. and a little past 3 p.m. No rounds fell on South Korean territory or in the territorial waters of South Korea.

The firing came as South Korea and U.S. officials were touring damaged buildings in Yeonpyeong, and as the United States moved armaments and personnel to the Yellow Sea for a joint naval drill set to start tomorrow.
