South Korea’s military seized a North Korean fishing boat crossing the sea border between the two Koreas on Tuesday.
A warning shot was also fired to fend off a North Korean patrol trying to get in. This is reported by the South Korean news agency Yonhap.
Border incidents between the two Koreas are closely monitored by both countries, which have been officially at war since the 1950-53 Korean War ended with a ceasefire and no peace treaty.
The North Korean fishing boat crossed the border at about 9:30 a.m. local time. It was chased by a North Korean patrol boat, and the South Korean army then fired a warning shot to repel the patrol.
The fishing boat was intercepted and seized for investigation.
