North Korean soldier defects south, heavily armed frontier



SEOUL, South Korea – A North Korean soldier fled to South Korea on Saturday morning and fled across the heavily armed land border of the countries.

South Korean soldiers took the North Korean to safety after finding him In the eastern zone of the demilitarized zone, the buffer zone that separates Korea, the South Korean military said in a brief statement.

South Korean officials planned to discuss it to try to find out its motive for overrunning, the military said. There was no unusual movement of the North Korean army at the time when the soldier crossed.

Although more than 32,000 North Koreans have moved to South Korea, most have gone across China to South Korea embassy in another country. Defectors rarely cross the demilitarized zone, reinforced on both sides by layers of barbed wire fences, minefields and armed guards.

In November 2017, a North Korean soldier (19459008) was fired by a bullet from his comrades to penetrate south through Panmunjom, the so-called truce village that spans the border.

Since Korean leaders first held talks in April, they have been trying to resolve the tensions at the border. They dismantled and discussed 22 of the hundreds of sentinels in the demilitarized zone, turning Panmunjom into an unarmed neutral zone.

On Friday, a South Korean train rode across the North Korean border for the first time in a decade; it is used in a field study on the possibilities of renewing the run-down rail system of the North.
