S. Korea Reportedly Begins Naval Firing Drills
"SEOUL, South Korea Brushing aside North Korean warnings of war, South Korea reportedly began live fire artillery drills on Monday, less than two weeks after the North's shelling of a South Korean island sharply escalated tensions between them.
"The drills were reported by local media outlets and wire services, citing anonymous officials at the Joint Chiefs of Staff. But a Defense Ministry spokesman declined Monday afternoon to confirm that the exercises had actually begun.
"The South Korean military said last week it would soon be holding artillery drills but had not indicated when."
