The South Korean navy chased from its waters North Korean gunboats that apparently strayed across a military demarcation line by mistake. The South Korean Defense Ministry said the North Korean vessels crossed the line in thick fog and sailed about four miles to the south. They retreated three hours later when a South Korean destroyer and six other navy ships were dispatched, it said. Marine artillery and air force jets also went on alert.

OPINION
May 29, 2009 | Donald Kirk, Donald Kirk, a longtime correspondent in South Korea, is the author of two books and many articles on Korean issues.
