N. Korea Fires Shots at S. Korea Navy Boat

North Korea fired shots at a South Korean naval boat on patrol Thursday, prompting the ship to fire several artillery rounds in waters in the latest clash near a disputed maritime border, NBC News reported. Hundreds of residents on the nearby island of Yeonpyeong, off the west coast of the Korean peninsula, were evacuated to shelters after warning sirens were sounded, but the incident ended quickly. The shells did not hit the South Korean ship and fell in waters near it.
