"The shells have fallen to the sea, 1 or 8 kilometers north of the Northern Limit Line (NLL) on the East Sea." 

"The North's live-fire artillery exercise is under way," said the officials, adding the North's artillery shells have not fallen into the southern part of the NLL on the East Sea. (Yonhap)
