South Korea and the United States yesterday launched a massive naval exercise in the tense Yellow Sea, ahead of the 62nd anniversary of the outbreak of the Korean War.

The three-day drill will involve 10 South Korean warships plus the USS George Washington aircraft carrier, 8,000 personnel and hundreds of combat aircraft.

The joint naval drill, which comes amid high tensions on the peninsula, is conducted every year, alternatively in the Sea of Japan and the Yellow Sea.
