The Democratic People's Republic of Korea fired artillery shells on Monday into its eastern waters from a region just north of the military demarcation line, a Republic of Korea military official said.

The official told Xinhua on the phone that the DPRK launched artillery shells from the region several hundreds of meters north of the Demilitarized Zone in Goseong, a border town about 220 kilometers northeast of Seoul.

The shells, which were fired at 11:53 am local time toward its northeastern waters, landed in waters 1 to 8 km north of the Northern Limit Line, the disputed sea boundary in the East Sea.
