North Korean soldier ‘defects to South Korea

A Norh Korean soldier has defected to South Korea through the heavily militarized land border, telling Seoul military personnel that he had shot dead two officers, South Korean officials say.

“Through loudspeakers, we confirmed he wanted to defect to the South and we led him to safety,” the spokesperson said, adding the soldier was being held in protective custody.”Six gunshots were heard and our guards spotted a North Korean soldier crossing the military demarcation line,” a spokesperson for Seoul’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said after the incident on Saturday.

“According to the defector, he shot dead his platoon leader and a company commander before crossing the border,” he added.

A defence ministry official confirmed a North Korean had defected across the land border, saying that he was being questioned by the military.

South Korean soldiers in the area, on the western part of the inter-Korean border, were put on alert after the incident around 12:10pm local time (03:10 GMT).

There was no independent confirmation of any casualties, but Yonhap news agency cited an unidentified military official as saying two North Korean soldiers had been seen “lying on the ground”.

There was no comment from Pyongyang….(Ajazeera)
