SEOUL, South Korea — South Korea's navy fired warning shots toward a North Korean fishing boat near their disputed sea border, the Defense Ministry said Wednesday, the latest sign of tension on the divided peninsula ahead of next week's Group of 20 summit in Seoul.

The ministry said the boat violated the western maritime boundary for about two hours before returning to North Korean waters early Wednesday. The maritime border, the scene of three deadly skirmishes between the Koreas, is a key flashpoint because the North does not recognize the UN line drawn at the end of the 1950-53 Korean War.
