South Korea plans an artillery exercise this week from the same island that North Korea shelled last month.

The North has warned of a "catastrophe" if the exercise is held.

New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, who has met with top leaders in North Korea, has called for "self-restraint" by both countries.
