South Korea Prepares for Military Exercises North of Seoul

South Korea said its military will hold a one-day exercise tomorrow involving jet fighters and mobile artillery in an area between Seoul and the Demilitarized Zone that separates the nation from its communist neighbor.

About 800 military personnel will take part in the drill near Pocheon, approximately 30 kilometers (19 miles) from the border with North Korea, said a spokesman at the Joint Chiefs of Staff who declined to be named, citing military policy.
