YEONPYEONG ISLAND, South Korea, Nov. 25 (Yonhap) -- South Korean marines who returned fire against a deadly artillery attack by North Korea said Thursday their counterattack is believed to have inflicted "severe damage" to the North. Two days after North Korea's attack on the border island of Yeonpyeong in the Yellow Sea, the marines stationed on the island told reporters visiting here that they responded to the bombardment in line with rules of engagement without any muddles, defending criticism that their response was delayed and feeble.
