    North Korean attack on South Korea: 8 provocations of the past decade

    North Korea shelled South Korea's Yeonpyeong island Tuesday, killing two South Korean marines and injuring more than a dozen people. South Korea returned fire.

Here are seven examples of the North's military provocations over the past decade.
