South and North Korean warships exchange fire

warshipA South Korean warship is reported to have exchanged fire with a North Korean naval vessel. Sources say the South Korean vessel opened fire when the Northern ship crossed a disputed sea border, the North Korean vessel then fired back.

North Korea insists its ship did not cross the border, and has demanded an apology.  The two navies have engaged in deadly exchanges twice along their western sea border in the past decade.

The incident comes days before US President Barack Obama’s visit to Asia. South Korean officials say none of their troops has been hurt, while the North’s boat was partially set ablaze before it sailed away.
