SEOUL - North Korea said it will conduct live fire drills in two areas near a disputed sea border with South Korea, the South Korean ministry of defense said on Tuesday.

North Korea conducted similar drills in late March firing more than 500 rounds of artillery near the so-called Northern Limit Line that has been the de facto sea border since the 1950-53 Korean war.

More than 100 rounds landed south of the border, prompting South Korea to fire hundreds of rounds back into the North's waters.
