South Korea military maneuvers scuttled by bad weather

Military maneuvers planned by South Korean troops did not take place Saturday because of bad weather on a border island shelled by North Korea last month, as the UN Security Council scheduled an emergency meeting at Russia's request amid concerns over rising tensions on the divided peninsula.
