INCHEON, South Korea — South Korea's government held an emergency meeting Thursday on fallout from North Korea's artillery attack as Washington and Seoul prepared for joint drills involving a US nuclear-powered supercarrier.

The bombardment Tuesday of a tiny South Korean island along a disputed maritime frontier killed at least four people, sparked a brief skirmish and alarmed world leaders including US President Barack Obama, who reaffirmed plans for joint maneuvers with Seoul in waters south of the clash starting Sunday.
