South Korea on Wednesday fired warning shots at a North Korean merchant ship for allegedly crossing into the south’s sea boundary, Seoul officials said.

Seoul's Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement that bad weather and an engine problem likely caused the North Korean ship to cross its boundaries. No further violence was reported.
