EOUL, South Korea — North Korea is accusing South Korea of opening fire in the military buffer zone that separates the two countries.

The official Korean Central News Agency said late Sunday that South Korean forces committed a "grave armed provocation" during the afternoon by firing toward a civil police post on the northern side of the demilitarized zone.

South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff denied the North's claim.

North Korea regularly accuses the South of stoking tensions, which Seoul denies.
