South Korean, US troops stage river-crossing drills as tensions grows with North Korea

South Korea says Pyongyang has fired artillery shells into a buffer zone as tension escalates on the Korean peninsula.
South Korean and US troops practiced building floating bridges to ferry tanks and other armoured vehicles across rivers on Wednesday, part of a larger joint military exercise that has angered North Korea.
South Korean attack helicopters deployed flares and armoured vehicles blew white smoke screens into the air as main battle tanks, armoured personnel carriers, and other military vehicles crossed pontoon bridges over the Namhan River near Yeoju, south of Seoul.
