North Korea attacks fish population in disputed waters

A light moment from yesterday's press briefing by State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley, responding to a question about North Korea firing about 130 live rounds into a disputed area of the Yellow Sea:

QUESTION: On North Korea. The U.S. has been urging the North Koreans to stop further provocation, but today, North Korean military fired more than a hundred rounds of artillery into borders (inaudible) - border of South Korea. So I can I ask a reaction to this particular incident?

MR. CROWLEY: I'm sure it resulted in a lot of dead fish and we certainly hope that PETA will protest. It is not a helpful sign by North Korea and this is exactly the kind of behavior we would like to see North Korea avoid.
