Artillery shells fired onto South Korean Border Island today caused the threat of death and invoked a flurry of gun fire. The barrage of firing came after North Korea´s disclosed information of an apparently operational uranium enrichment program.
Over 50 North Korean shells heralded their way into South Korean territory, landing on the South Korean island of Yeonpyeong.
One island resident said "At least 10 houses are burning. I can´t see clearly for the smoke. The hillsides are also on fire. We were told by loudspeakers to flee our homes." Televised footage showed giant billows of acrid smoke rising from the South.
