Two North Korean vessels crossed the Northern Limit Line near Yeonpyeong-do Island in the

West Sea, at around 7:30 AM, Korea time this morning.

Seoul's Defense Ministry says... the patrol boat and fishing boat retreated northward

from the maritime border... after the South Korean Navy fired several warning shots.

The South Korean military has been put on alert given the heightened tension on the

peninsula. Officials say surveillance along the NLL has

been beefed up and the military is keeping a keen eye for any unusual activities north

of the border.
