    South Korea’s military fired warning shots at a North Korean drone which flew near the border between the two states on Wednesday, local media reported.

    TOKYO (Sputnik) – According to the Yonhap news agency, the drone then turned back north.

    The incident reportedly occurred at South Korea’s Dorasan observation post in the western part of the Korean Demilitarized Zone.

    South and North Korea are legally at war, as no peace treaty was signed after the Korean War of 1950-1953.

    The relations between the two countries have further deteriorated after Pyongyang claimed it had carried out a hydrogen bomb test. Seoul started anti-North propaganda broadcasting through loudspeakers over the border in response.
