South Korea prepares for live-ammo drills.
Military officials said troops were preparing for "further provocations" from North Korea, such as possible attacks on anti-North Korea loudspeakers in border areas or on South Korean ships patrolling the Yellow Sea, Yonhap reported.
"We plan to resume live-fire artillery drills near five islands in the Yellow Sea, including Yeonpyeong, as soon as possible," said a statement from the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
"Ahead of the drills, we are checking countermeasures against North Korea's further provocations and deployed weapons to launch a counterstrike if the North provokes again during the drills."
