The South Korean military carried out a live-fire exercise near the tensely-guarded inter-Korean Yellow Sea border Friday to check its preparedness against possible provocations by North Korea, the defense ministry said.
The two-hour naval drill is part of the ongoing Hoguk (defense of nation) exercise that began last week and involves some 330,000 troops with the aim of bolstering its defense posture against growing North Korean threats.
The 12-day drill is the largest ever in terms of scale.
