North Korea announced a live-fire drill on March 31 near its disputed maritime border with South Korea, further ratcheting up tensions a day after threatening a “new form” of nuclear test. South Korean Marine amphibious assault vehicles land on the seashore during a joint landing operation by U.S. and South Korean Marines in Pohang, 270 kms southeast of Seoul, on March 31, 2014.

Tensions are on the rise on the Korean peninsula. One day after the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea raised the possibility of further nuclear tests, Pyongyang conducted live fire drills near the maritime border with the Republic of Korea on Monday. CCTV’s U-Jean Jung reports.
