Seoul, South Korea (CNN) — North Korea on Tuesday fired artillery into the sea near its tense western sea border with South Korea, injuring at least

four South Korean soldiers, the Yonhap news agency reported.

At least 200 rounds of artillery hit an inhabited South Korean island, Yonhap said.

The firing began about 2:30 p.m. local time

The South Korean army raised its alert condition and braced for any possible fire, the report said.

The country’s military responded with 80 rounds of artillery and deployed fighter jets to counter the fire, Yonhap said.

Images of plumes of smoke were quickly broadcast on Yonhap television, but it was not immediately clear what the artillery had hit.

The island that was hit has a total of about 1,300 residents, a fisherman who lives on the island told Yonhap.

The South Korean immediately called an emergency meeting of its security ministers.

5.20.2010 By CK Hunter

Nuclear War “Flashpoint” Warning:

Dire events are issuing forth from the long acknowledged to be deranged Kim Jong Il of North Korea. Comments made by a North Korean official indicate an attitude and disposition of actually attempting to blackmail the USA and world community with nuclear war if any sort of military retaliatory actions or UN sanctions are taken. His comments were deeply disturbing, if they are, in fact, taken at face value.
