North Korea may have fired several artillery shots Sunday morning, according to South Korea’s military, as tensions over a possible nuclear test run high on the peninsula.

The South Korean military has spotted some “traces” that showed the regime appeared to have fired artillery weapons between 8:07 a.m. and 11:03 a.m., the South’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a text message late Sunday. South Korea has raised its alert on further provocations while maintaining close cooperation with the US, it said.
