The Sino-Korean friendship bridge that links Dandong in northeast China's Liaoning province with the North Korean border town of Siniuju (opposite) is pictured lit up on November 24, 2010 from Dandong. Chinese state media coverage of the Korean peninsula shelling incident has avoided criticising Beijing's close ally Pyongyang and even said the episode showed North Korea's "toughness" after the reclusive communist state fired a deadly barrage of artillery shells onto a South Korean island on November 23 in one of the most serious border incidents since the 1950-1953 war, sparking global condemnation of Pyongyang.
