Korea fired warning shots Tuesday at an unidentified object flying south
from rival North Korea, its military said.
Local media said the object may have been a North Korean drone.
South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement that the South
Korean military bolstered its air surveillance and broadcast a warning
to North Korea in response to the object. It provided no other details.
South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reported that South Korea fired about
90 machine gun rounds into the air and toward North Korea.
It said South Korea was analysing whether a North Korean drone had
crossed the border.
The Koreas face off across the world’s most heavily armed border, and
the two sides occasionally clash.
In 2014, they traded machine gun and rifle fire after South Korean
activists released anti-North Korean propaganda balloons across the
Demilitarized Zone that bisects the Korean Peninsula, but no casualties
