SEOUL Nov 23 President Lee Myung-bak said on Tuesday it was unforgiveable for North Korea to fire artillery shells at civilians on a South Korean island.
"Indiscriminate attacks on civilians are unpardonable, also in a humanitarian sense," he told a military briefing, according to a pool report. The North fired a barrage of shells at the island, killing two soldiers and setting residential areas ablaze.
