#Yonhap: North Korea fires artillery shells towards South's border island

North Korea has fired more than 200 rounds of artillery shells off its west coast, towards the South's Yeonpyeong island, Seoul's military has said.
Immediately afterwards, South Korea issued an evacuation warning to civilians on the island - which is home to around 2,000 people.
The South has condemned the move, calling it a "provocative act".
