SEOUL, Aug. 10 (Yonhap) -- North Korea fired one more artillery round into waters near a disputed inter-Korean maritime border Wednesday, prompting South Korea to fire back in retaliation, military officials said.

Residents on Yeonpyeong island near the Yellow Sea border reported hearing the firing of three artillery shells from a North Korean shore battery Wednesday evening. However, South Korea's military said only one round landed in waters near the border.
