S. Korea vows to strengthen rules of engagement

South Korea said Thursday that it will strengthen its rules of engagement in the Yellow Sea, following Tuesday's shelling by North Korea.

Marine forces based in five islands in the West Sea, near the North Korea maritime border, also will be reinforced, a government representative said following a meeting between President Lee Myung-bak and his economic and security ministers Thursday morning in Seoul.
