South Korea said it would carry out a live fire exercise today near the disputed sea border with North Korea, despite Pyongyang's warning of "grave consequences" if it went ahead.

Defence Ministry Spokesman Kim Min-seok told reporters that the North had sent a faxed message yeterday, demanding the exercise involving artillery batteries on Baengnyeong and Yeonpyeong islands in the Yellow Sea be called off.

The message from the North's top military body, the National Defence Commission, threatened unspecified "grave consequences" if the drill went ahead.
