N. Korea fires artillery into border island of Yeonpyeong-do



Dozens of North Korean artillery shells landed on a South Korean border island in the West Sea Tuesday, damaging 60-70 homes, reports said.

South Korean troops fired back, the defense ministry said.

A South Korean official said artillery shells landed on Yeonpyeong Island.

The firing came amid North Korea's claim that it has a new uranium enrichment facility.
