The burnt bodies of two construction workers have been found on the South Korean island bombarded by North Korean shelling on Tuesday, bringing the death toll to four. Eighteen people have also been wounded and hundreds evacuated.
“I heard the sound of artillery, and I felt that something was flying over my head,” said Lim Jung-eun, a 36 year-old housewife who escaped Yeonpyeong island with her three children, one of whom, a 9-month-old baby girl, she carried on her back. “Then the mountain caught on fire.”
