South Korean president Lee Myung-bak has ordered his military to strike North Korea if it shows any signs of provocation after the North apparently attacked the South Yeonpyeong Island earlier today. Two South Korean marines died, and at least 12 were wounded. There were reports of civilian injuries and houses were set ablaze as scores of shells fell.
A North Korea expert at Beijing’s Central Party School, Zhang Liangui, told the Sydney Morning Herald that Kim Jong-un was deliberately destabilising the environment in order to mobilise the military and consolidate his power.
