HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - On Tuesday, about 400 people from Hawaii's Korean community denounced North Korea's attack on South Korea's Yeonpyeong Island.

They gathered at the state Capitol.

The attack happened on Nov. 23 when North Korea fired bombs over the sea aimed at the South Korean island.

The group calls it "A clear provocation of war towards the republic of Korea."

On Tuesday, they demanded that the North apologize and punish those responsible for the attack.
