North Korean soldiers watch a volleyball game as they sit on a shipping container on the banks of Yalu River, near the North Korean town of Sinuiju, opposite the Chinese border city of Dandong, January 21, 2014. North Korea demanded that South Korea and the United States halt annual military drills due in February and March, saying they were a direct provocation, a statement that suggested a re-run of a sharp escalation in tension last year.
