Korea on Brink of War as North Fires More Artillery


Just days after North Korea's artillery attack on South Korea's Yeonpyeong island, more artillery shell fire was heard coming from North Korea on Friday. A spokesman for the South's Joint Chiefs of Staff said no projectiles landed on South Korean territory.

Tensions remain high as the top U.S. commander in South, Korea General Walter Sharp, visited the island to survey the damage.

"What I've seen here physically North Korea attacked this island, which is a clear violation of the armistice agreement," said General Sharp.
