SEOUL - The bodies of two civilians were found Wednesday on a South Korean island that came under artillery bombardment from the North, a media report said.
The deaths were the first civilian fatalities reported in the attack, Yonhap News Agency said.
On Tuesday, North Korea fired artillery shells at South Korea’s Yeonpyeong Island near their disputed western sea border, killing two South Korean soldiers and wounding 18 other people.
North Korea’s artillery bombardment provoked widespread international condemnation.
