    South Korea has said they will conduct live fire drill Noon their time. Which my sources say that less than an hour from now.

    “It is appalling. If it was a bona fide need for artillery practice they have plenty of islands in the Western Sea,” Leonid Petrov, a professor at the University of Sydney who specializes in Korea, told the Guardian. “This is simply sending a message that the South is putting pressure on the North – but at the same time refuses to negotiate.”

    Meanwhile, tensions on the Peninsula are escalating, as South Korea said it would conduct a live-fire drill Monday from Yeonpyeong island.

    Residents of Yeonpyeong were told to take shelter ahead of the imminent drill, which officials there said was part of routine exercises suspended after the DPRK's deadly artillery bombardment on the island on Nov. 23.

    The drill is likely to be held between 11 a.m. and noon, Seoul's Yonhap News Agency said, citing unidentified sources.

    The DPRK, saying its recent shelling was for its self-defense, railed against the planned firing exercise and warned of further "self-defensive blows."

    Pyongyang has never recognized a disputed maritime border near Yeonpyeong, unilaterally drawn by the U.S.-led UN military forces at the end of the 1950-53 Korean War. The two Koreas have had fatal naval skirmishes near the sea border.

    Representatives from the Armistice Commission and the United Nations Command are expected to watch the drill, according to local reports.
