Views of Yeonpyeong As Worries Mount on South Korean Isle
A man uses binoculars to view the North Korean Jangjae Island, seen from the Manghyang observation deck on Yeonpyeong Island, South Korea, on Saturday, June 27, 2020. On the sleepy island of Yeonpyeong, the threat of conflict is constant with North Korean coastal howitzers just 11 kilometers (7 miles) away and propaganda banners visible through binoculars. There have been several military clashes in the contested maritime boundary off the west of the peninsula since 1999, making it a possible ignition point for a major conflict that could draw in the U.S. and China the two biggest allies for the rival Koreas.
