November 24, 2010 (KATAKAMI / RIA NOVOSTI) — Two civilian victims of Tuesday’s artillery skirmish between North and South Korea were found on the attacked Yeonpyeong Island, Yonhap news agency said on Wednesday.
Servicemen found the bodies at a construction site on South Korea’s Yeonpyeong Island, Yonhap quoted the Coast Guard as saying, adding that they had not been identified yet.
The find brings the death toll of Tuesday’s artillery fire on the island in the Yellow Sea to four, including two South Korean marines reported earlier.
Eighteen others were injured, including three civilians.
The attack is the second incident in the tense Yellow Sea border area this year. In March, a North Korean submarine was alleged to have torpedoed a South Korean naval ship, the Cheonan, causing the loss of 46 lives. (*)
