SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea fired two rounds toward South Korea at their tense border and South Korean troops immediately fired back, an official said Friday.

North Korean troops fired at a South Korean guard post in the Demilitarized Zone, said an official at the Joint Chiefs of Staff in Seoul.

There were no South Korean injuries and it was unclear whether it was an accident or an intentional provocation, the official said. He asked not to be identified because he was not authorized to speak to the media.
