SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea on Saturday accused South Korea of using civilians as human shields at an island the North attacked this week, saying the South was publicizing the deaths of two of the civilians as part of a propaganda campaign.

The comments came on the eve of US-South Korean naval maneuvers and follow a surprise North Korean artillery attack on a small island in the Yellow Sea that houses military installations and tiny fishing communities. The barrage killed two marines and two civilians and sent tensions between the rivals soaring.

North Korea's state news agency says the South should be held responsible because "it took such inhuman action as creating 'a human shield' by deploying civilians around artillery positions."
