YEONPYEONG ISLAND, South Korea — South Korea's Defense Ministry has ordered journalists to leave the front-line island of Yeonpyeong, citing high tension with North Korea.

The Defense Ministry says "the situation is not good" on the island, following the start of South Korea-US military drills in Yellow Sea waters to the south.

Earlier Sunday, the military ordered islanders and journalists to evacuate to shelters following after several artillery rounds were heard. None of the rounds hit the island.
