INCHEON, South Korea — Tensions remain at heightened levels 24 hours after a fiery artillery exchange between North and South Korean forces left two South Korean Marines on the offshore island of Yeonpyeong dead, more than a dozen injured and the world watching for any additional signs of trouble.

The incident between the two countries happened at approximately 2:30 p.m. local time Tuesday (9:30 p.m. Monday Pacific time), when North Korean forces fired artillery shells, striking several buildings on the island. The explosions sent residents into immediate panic and triggered a retaliatory onslaught of South Korean artillery fire into North Korean territory.
