Video Shows Damage from North Korean Attack on South Korea – 11/23/10

Here is a video report on the damage caused on South Korea’s Yeonpyeong Island by a North Korean Artillery attack today that dropped as many as 200 shells on the island. So far, reports indicate at least two South Korean Marines have been killed in the attack, and at least 12 injured. Many shells reportedly hit the military base, but some also hit civilian homes on the island.

The United States has warships in the area, but the report says the U.S. is not involved in the situation as yet. South Korea launched return fire on the North, and scrambled some fighter jets in response to the attack.

UPDATE: Fox News just reported that South Korea is warning the North that any further attacks will result in “enormous retaliation” from the South.
