North Korea and South Korea reported no casualties in exchange of fire in the demilitarized zone


SEOUL- 
The South Korean military said Sunday that North Korea fired multiple bullets at a heavily guarded demilitarized zone between South and North Korea at a South Korean post.

The South Korean side reported that the shooting did not cause casualties or property damage. But the South Korean military ’s joint staff said that the South Koreans responded and issued a warning through a broadcast along the border.

The South Korean military said it was understanding the situation and working to communicate with the north through a military communication channel to avoid further tension. But the South Korean military statement was ambiguous and did not say whether North Korea responded.

It is unclear why the North Koreans fired. The South Korean side said that North Korea began shooting at 7:41 am local time. North Korea has not commented on this.

As the two sides exchanged fire, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un made his first public appearance in three weeks. There are many rumors about his health.
