S. Korean military begins live-fire artillery drill near N. Korea
SEOUL, Dec. 20 (Yonhap) -- South Korea on Monday fired artillery into waters near the western sea border with North Korea, pushing ahead with a high-tension exercise amid Pyongyang's threat to strike back if the drill goes ahead, an official said.

   The drill began at around 2:30 p.m., an official at the South's Joint Chiefs of Staff said.

   "It won't last long," he said on condition of anonymity.
