Islanders live in fear a year after NKorean attack

One year ago fishermen fled this tiny island in the Yellow Sea after North Korean artillery shells rained down on them. Today the crab season is booming and most people have moved back.

But while the rage among islanders has dimmed, residents on South Korea's Yeonpyeong Island say they live in fear of another North Korean attack.

People on the island say they get stressed out when they hear loud sounds. They say they've lost confidence in their daily lives. They are easily angered and afraid to be alone.

The attack killed four people and threatened to push the rival Koreas to the brink of war. It also has a community wondering whether their homes are still in danger.
