North Korean leader rallies front-line troops
Seoul: North Korea says its leader Kim Jong Il has rallied troops at a front-line military base.
State television said on Saturday that Kim grabbed the hands of each commanding officer as he visited the base near disputed waters with South Korea. The report recalled last year`s shelling of South Korea`s Yeonpyeong Island that killed four people and said the troops were ready for a similar attack.
North Korean media did not say when Kim made the visit. South Korea conducted large-scale military drills on Wednesday near the maritime border to mark the first anniversary of the North Korean attack.
