Guam - The controversy between North Korea and South Korea shows no threat to Guam, at least for now. The Associated Press reports that earlier today the North bombarded a South Korean island near their disputed western border. About 100 rounds of artillery reportedly hit the island, resulting in the death of two Marines and injuring 16 others.

The report states that South Korea returned fire and scrambled fighter jets in response.  Additionally, South Korea officials call the inhumane attack on civilian areas a violation of the 1953 armistice that halted the Korean War. Homeland Security - Department of Defense meanwhile says the situation poses no threat to Guam, but that they will advise us immediately if the situation changes.
