South Korea has announced plans to build a new naval base near its border with North Korea. The base will include barracks and a training ground to accommodate around 100 troops.
The base will be located on one of five South Korean islands established by the UN in the 1950s, but Pyongyang refuses to accept Seoul's ownership of the island. The border has been the scene of several clashes between the neighbors - the most recent attack happened in 2010, when the North shelled one of the Yellow Sea islands, killing 4 South Koreans.
