UNITED NATIONS — UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Tuesday condemned North Korea's artillery attack on South Korea's Yeongpyeong Island and conveyed his concerns to the Security Council's president.
Ban called the attack "one of the gravest incidents since the end of the Korean War," his spokesman Martin Nesirky said.
The island is near the Koreas' disputed sea border. The attack killed at least two South Korean marines, set dozens of buildings ablaze and sent civilians fleeing for shelter.
