    Growing tensions

    South Korea's joint chiefs of staff could not immediately confirm the report on Thursday.

    North Korea had earlier issued a no-sail zone in waters off its east coast through July 10.

    The move comes a week after the United States extended economic sanctions against North Korea for another year as tensions grew over the communist state's nuclear activities.
