The border between the two Koreas is growing more and more tense after North Korea threatened to test its first atomic bomb as early as sunday, October 8.

Gunfire rang out Saturday along the heavily armed no man’s land separating the divided Koreas, as regional tensions mounted in anticipation of the plan.

South Korean soldiers fired 60 shots as a warning after five North Korean soldiers crossed a boundary in the Demilitarized Zone separating the two country’s forces. The South Korean military officials said that the North sometimes orchestrates border skirmishes to jack up tensions at sensitive moments in international standoffs.
