North Korea fired 100 artillery shells into the sea Monday in a live-fire drill near the eastern maritime border with South Korea after a recent series of missile tests.South Korean border troops were already on heightened alert after a series of short-range ballistic missile tests by the North in recent weeks, including the firing of two Scud missiles into the Sea of Japan (East Sea) Sunday.North Korea often conducts tests and drills as a show of displeasure, and Sunday's missiles were fired after it denounced an upcoming South Korean-US naval exercise.The South dismissed the offer as "nonsensical" in the light of the North's nuclear weapons program and reiterated that the annual joint military drills with the US were non-negotiable.
