Zen 508: 'Two Koreas trade artillery fire' - update

Just tweeted on BBC breaking news. No further information at present, but it doesn't feel like a positive start to the day. Especially following yesterday's breaking news about the massive secret uranium enrichment facility the North has been building on the sly.

Update: apparently North Korea shelled a South Korean island on what's being seen as one of the most serious provocations since the end of the Korean War in 1953.

FYI, the border between the Koreas is the most heavily militarised in the world. A hot war here would cost millions of lives. This is not a positive development.
