South Korea remembers attack on Yeonpyeong island

Updated 23 November 2012, 16:48 AEDT

Thousands of anti-North Korea activists have gathered in the South Korean capital, Seoul, to mark the second anniversary of the North's deadly attack on the disputed island of Yeonpyeong.

North Korea shelled the front-line island two years ago today, killing two marines and two civilians.

Almost 20 other people were injured and there was widespread property damage.

In the lead up to the anniversary, North Korea threatened to attack the island again, over what it calls Seoul's "provocations".

Lauren Jones visited Yeonpyeong recently and filed this report.
