South Korea fired artillery rounds towards the source of an incoming North Korean projectile in a western area of the inter-Korea border on Thursday, Seoul's defense ministry said.

The South Korean military fired "tens" of 155mm artillery rounds after it said North Korea fired a projectile at a South Korean propaganda loudspeaker.

"Our military has stepped up monitoring and is closely watching North Korean military movements," South Korea's defense ministry said in a statement.
