North Korea fired scores of artillery shells at a South Korean island last Tuesday, killing two soldiers and two civilians, in one of the heaviest attacks on its neighbor since the Korean War ended in 1953.
The incident followed revelations that Pyongyang is fast developing another source of material to make atomic bombs, prompting international condemnation of the act and unsettling diplomatic nerves in the region and throughout the world.
Countries are picking sides: U.S. has vowed to standby Seoul, while all eyes are on how China will balance its role as North Korea's only major ally, amid international pressure to punish its Pyongyang for the attack.
Back on the tiny island of Yeonpyeong, the site of the shelling, hundreds of civilians have fled their homes - many in ruins – vowing never to return.
These are images captured from the attack.
