South Korean troops fired at a commercial aircraft flying near the tense sea border with North Korea, misidentifying it as one of the communist North's jet fighters, but no damage occurred, local news media reported on Saturday.
The Yonhap news agency, quoting a military source, said two marine corps soldiers guarding the waters off the South's western city of Incheon, fired their K-2 rifles for about 10 minutes at dawn Friday. The plane was later identified as an Asiana Airlines flight making its descent to Seoul airport.
