South Korea denounced a barrage of artillery fired by North Korea into the sea as a grave provocation Tuesday and warned that it would deal sternly with any further such acts.
Most of the shells in Monday's barrage landed in the North's waters, but about 10 struck near a South Korean island near the sea border causing no damage, the Joint Chiefs of Staff said.
South Korea's Defense Ministry said in a statement that the move violated an armistice that halted fighting in the Korean War in the early 1950s.
