S Korea fires warning shots to repel N Korean patrol boat

SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA (AP) – South Korea said it fired warning shots at a North Korean patrol boat that temporarily crossed the countries’ disputed western sea boundary while chasing an unarmed North Korean vessel.

The North Korean patrol boat crossed the so-called Northern Limit Line yesterday morning while pursuing the vessel in waters near South Korea’s Baekryeong island and retreated after a South Korean naval ship fired warning shots, according to Seoul’s Defence Ministry and Joint Chiefs of Staff.

South Korean military officials seized the North Korean vessel being chased by the patrol boat and were questioning its seven crewmembers.
