SEOUL (AFP)--South Korea has sent hundreds more Marines to its tense border with North Korea, military officials said Friday as world powers prepared to punish the communist state for its nuclear test.
U.S. intelligence officials believe Pyongyang will respond to the U.N. Security Council resolution with a third atomic test, according to sources quoted by American TV networks.
More Marines were sent last week to two islands along the disputed Yellow Sea border, the scene of bloody naval battles in 1999 and 2002, a Marine Corps source said.
