Seoul, May 12 (BNA) -- South Korean and U.S. marines will stage their first joint drill on islands near the Yellow Sea border with North Korea this year, in a show of force to the North that its provocations won't be tolerated, officials said Thursday.

Marine commanders from the two allies discussed details about the planned drill at their regular "Staff Talk" held on Baengnyeong Island this week, officials at the South's Marine Corps said
