SEOUL, South Korea — The rival Koreas say they’ve exchanged warning shots along near their disputed western sea boundary.
South Korea’s military says its navy fired warning shots to repel a North Korean merchant ship that it says violated the sea boundary early Monday.
North Korea’s military said it’s responded by firing 10 rounds of artillery shells as a warning to South Korea.
There were no reports of clashes between the Koreas.
The incident comes amid heightened tensions over North Korea’s recent barrage of missile tests.
