North Korea warned on Thursday it would repeat its
attack on South Korean border island as Seoul prepared to start a
naval drill to mark the second anniversary of the North's shelling of
one of its islands, North Korean state media reported Thursday.
South Korea is to hold a memorial service on Friday and conduct a naval firing drill over the next few days to commemorate the deaths of two soldiers when its Stalinist neighbour shelled Yeonpyeong island in the Yellow Sea on November 23, 2010.
"The commemoration of the so-called victorious battle on Yeonpyeong Island will lead to the second Yeonpyeong Island disaster," a North Korean military spokesman was quoted as saying by the North's Korean Central News Agency.
The North's shelling of the island was one of the most serious border incidents since the 1950-53 Korean War.
