North And South Korea Exchange Missile Fire Off Each Other Coast
North and South Korea have both fired missile landing in waters off each other’s coasts for the first time.
South Korea retaliated on Wednesday three hours after North Korea launched a missile that landed less than 60 kilometers, off the south’s city of Sokcho.
The South Korea’s military said this was an “unacceptable” breach of its territory.

It fired three air-to-ground missiles in response, which officials said landed a similar distance past the Northern Limit Line (NLL).
It triggered air-raid sirens on Ulleung, where residents were told to evacuate to underground shelters.
The demarcation line marks the rough midway-point in the sea between North and South Korea, but the North has never accepted the boundary.
