North Korea is warning South Korea to stop planned live-fire drills on an island the North bombed last month.

The North says the "intensity and scope" of its retaliation will be worse than last month's attack if the South goes through with its announced one-day live-fire drills sometime between Saturday and Tuesday on Yeonpyeong Island.

The North responded to similar South Korean drills on Nov. 23 by raining artillery shells on the tiny fishing community near the Koreas' disputed sea border. Four South Koreans were killed.

The South has said the drills are part of "routine, justified" exercises. Representatives of the UN Command that oversees the armistice that ended the Korean War will observe the drills.
