At Sea - Korea's Disputed Border - 30 Apr 2014
The Northern Limit Line (NLL) is a disputed maritime border between North and South Korea. It extends from the west coast of Korea where it curves northward, effectively isolating five remote South Korean islands, the furthest of which is a four hour boat ride from the mainland. One of the islands, Yeonpyeong, was shelled by North Korean rockets and artillery in November 2010 when South Korean marines were conducting artillery drills on the island. In subsequent years, the South Korean government has increased its military presence on the islands. Cliff tops are adorned with cruise missiles capable of striking Pyongyang, and the beaches are lined with barbed wire, soldiers, and mines. On Tuesday North Korea announced they plan to conduct firing drills near the NLL.

A location marker, seen as a blue dot on a map, shows the position of the photographer's phone on the island of Baengnyeong, which lies just inside the South Korean side of the Northern Limit Line (NLL) in the Yellow Sea April 13, 2014. The Northern Limit Line, a disputed maritime border that wraps itself round a part of the North's coastline, has been the scene of frequent clashes between South and North Korea. The line was drawn up at the end of the 1950-53 Korean War and North Korea does not recognize it. The two sides are still technically at war as the conflict ended in a mere truce, not a treaty.

South Korean soldiers walk past a barbed wire fortification on a beach on the island of Baengnyeong, which lies on the South Korean side of the Northern Limit Line (NLL) in the Yellow Sea April 14, 2014. Baengnyeong, which is closer to Pyongyang than Seoul, is an isolated and heavily militarized island whose residents live in constant fear of possible clashes between two armies. The beaches of Baengnyeong are often walled with barbed wire fences straddling the sand dunes with intermittent holes for machine gun positions.

Kim Ho-soon, a 66-year-old fisher-woman, adjusts her mask as she prepares to dive off the island of Baengnyeong, which lies on the South Korean side of the Northern Limit Line (NLL), in the Yellow Sea April 12, 2014. "North Korea doesn't bother us...[South Korean] military, China and reporters are ones that bother us" said Kim. Local fishermen, many of whom have been on the islands for generations, have had their fishing grounds vastly restricted by the Northern Limit Line. The Northern Limit Line, a disputed maritime border that wraps itself round a part of the North's coastline, has been the scene of frequent clashes between South and North Korea. The line was drawn up at the end of the 1950-53 Korean War and North Korea does not recognize it. The two sides are still technically at war as the conflict ended in a mere truce, not a treaty.

Elderly residents are seen behind boxes as they warm themselves in a bomb shelter on the island of Yeonpyeong, which lies on the South Korean side of the Northern Limit Line (NLL), in the Yellow Sea April 9, 2014. Local officials said the population on the island was aging because there aren't enough jobs for the working age group and the young leave the island for colleges on the mainland. In 2010 North Korea fired multiple shells onto the island killing four people, including two civilians in a first such attack since the end of the 1950-53 Korean War. The two sides are still technically at war as the conflict ended in a mere truce, not a treaty. Picture taken April 9, 2014. REUTERS/Damir Sagolj (SOUTH KOREA - Tags: MILITARY SOCIETY POLITICS)

Children play in front of a tank on the island of Baengnyeong, which lies on the South Korean side of the Northern Limit Line (NLL), in the Yellow Sea April 12, 2014. Baengnyeong, which is closer to Pyongyang than Seoul, is an isolated and heavily militarized island whose residents live in constant fear of possible clashes between two armies. The beaches of Baengnyeong are often walled with barbed wire fences straddling the sand dunes with intermittent holes for machine gun positions. The Northern Limit Line, a disputed maritime border that wraps itself round a part of the North's coastline, has been the scene of frequent clashes between South and North Korea. The line was drawn up at the end of the 1950-53 Korean War and North Korea does not recognize it. The two sides are still technically at war as the conflict ended in a mere truce, not a treaty.
