Tensions on the Korean Peninsula Soar after North Attacks

Hosted by

For the first time since the Korean War, North Korea fired artillery shells on South Korea's civilian territory today, killing two soldiers, wounding residents and setting fire to houses on Yeonpyeong Island. North Korea says it was responding to shells fired at sea during a South Korean military exercise.
