In this photo by Ahn Young-joon, South Korean special warfare soldiers aim their machine guns in a frozen river during 10 days of training to strengthen the military's winter weather combat capabilities. About 200 special warfare soldiers exercised on snow-covered ground, rappelled from helicopters and engaged in tactical skiing while shooting at virtual targets during the drills in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
