SEOUL: A South Korean news agency says North Korea has fired into disputed waters near a South Korean warship.
Both Koreas regularly conduct artillery drills in the waters near their disputed maritime boundary in the Yellow Sea. But it wasn't immediately clear what was happening Thursday.
The Yonhap news agency had no other details and South Korean officials didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
North Korea has in recent weeks conducted a string of artillery drills and missile tests and has unleashed a torrent of racist and sexist rhetoric at the leaders of the U.S. and South Korea.
