Naval forces of North and South Korea fired artillery shells in waters belonging to the other nation on Monday.
The government of Kim Jong-un announced they would be conducting live fire exercises near border regions. Over 500 artillery pieces were fired into the Yellow Sea. According to South Korean officials, about 100 of these shells landed in waters belonging to the south. After this happened, the south responded by firing artillery off the coast of North Korea. Residents of five islands near the area were forced to leave their homes.
Later, a military drone crashed on the disputed island of Baengnyeong. This land is claimed by both
North and South Korea. Authorities are attempting to determine if the drone was operated by forces from the north. That country has recently displayed several unmanned aircraft during military parades.
If the unmanned aircraft did come the north, officials in Seoul want to know the mission the craft was on when it went down.
