North Korean naval craft shot at and seized two South Korean fishing boats in the Yellow Sea off the west coast of the Korean Peninsula, the South Korean Defense Ministry announced. It said the boats, each with 10 crew members aboard, were with 30 other fishing boats 33 miles west of a South Korean island near the demarcation line between north and south. North Korea confirmed the seizure and said the boats had intruded into North Korean waters.
