February 05, 1989|From Associated Press

TOKYO — North Korea accused South Korea of committing a military provocation Saturday by sending four warships into its territorial waters.

The north's official Korean Central News Agency, monitored in Tokyo, said the ships sailed deep into its waters off North Korea's western coast before turning south when a North Korean patrol boat approached. The report did not say whether any shots were fired.

It was the third reported incident between the two in eight days.
