FLASH: Reuters witness says artillery fire still heard on South Korea's Yeonpyeong island
1 minute ago via web
President Lee Myung-bak ordered all public servants Monday to go and stay on emergency mode, as the country's military conducted live-ammunition drills from the western border island of Yeonpyeong despite North Korea's threats of a military response.
Lee received related briefings from his chief of staff, Yim Tae-hee, and issued an order through Prime Minister Kim Hwang-sik for "the entire government and all public officials to maintain an emergency duty mode," presidential spokeswoman Kim Hee-jung told reporters.

Yes, Thank you Vitchito. However don't forget the people in the area that are dealing with this. They just can't log off and get back to it when they feel like it. This is not over. These people deserve our prayers.

"I can't exactly tell how many (shells) have been fired, some are distant and some are noisy," said Reuters journalist Kim Do-gyun, from an air-raid shelter on the island. "The bunker is shaking and people here are worried."
