Yonhap news agency says that the militaries of North and South Korea have exchanged artillery fire along their disputed western sea border.

North Korea fired several rounds of land-based artillery off the west coast Wednesday, two days after it designated two no-sail zones along the sea border, Yonhap reported.

Yonhap, citing no source, said South Korea's military returned fire. The report did not provide further details.

South Korea's Defense Ministry said it could not immediately confirm the report.

The western sea border is a constant source of military tension between the two Koreas. Their navies fought a brief yet bloody gunbattle in November that left one North Korean sailor dead and three others wounded.
