SEOUL, Dec. 8 (Yonhap) -- A South Korean military official said sounds of distant artillery fire were heard on Wednesday from within North Korea near the tense Yellow Sea border.
No shells have landed south of the border or on Yeonpyeong Island, the site of last month's bombardment by the North, the official at the South's Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said on condition of anonymity.
