North Korean soldier defects to South Korea at truce village

Trump believes NK nukes greater threat than alleged Russian meddling: aide

"In the afternoon today, a North Korean soldier defected from a guard post on the North Korean side of the JSA toward our side and our military took him", the Yonhap news agency quoted an unidentified military official as saying.

An official with the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff said the North's border guards fired at least 40 rounds.

South Korea's military has strengthened vigilance in the wake of the incident and remains prepared for any situation, the JCS said.

"What the president is trying to do right now is recognize that the gravest threat that America faces is North Korea developing nuclear weapons". We urge the top brass to get to the bottom of the case involving North Korean soldiers shooting at a fleeing defector and come up with measures to prevent such a mishap in the future.

Two North Korean soldiers defected to the South in June after crossing the frontier at another location.

"His organs are extremely damaged. we do not know how long he can hold up", Lee said, describing the soldier's condition as "very serious".

South Korean troops found the injured soldier south of the border after hearing sounds of gunfire, a South Korean Defense Ministry official said, requesting anonymity, citing department rules.

If North Korea is proven to have fired shots through the area, this would constitute a breach of the armistice agreement.

Areas around Panmunjom were the site of bloodshed and defection attempts by North Koreans in the past, but there have been no such incidents in recent years. More than a million mines are believed to be buried inside the zone.

The most famous incident was in 1976, when two American army officers were killed by ax-wielding North Korean soldiers.

United Nations Command (UNC) said the soldier had driven close to the heavily-guarded, military demarcation line in a vehicle. In September the North carried out its sixth and largest nuclear test, of what it described as a hydrogen bomb.

Rex Tillerson, the secretary of state, was photographed by North Korean soldiers while he stood inside one of the huts during a visit to the DMZ in March.
