American man arrested attempting to cross into North Korea”

The North Korean soldier was spotted sprinting from a guard post in the direction of Freedom House, located in the truce village of Panmunjom at the inter-Korean border, around 3:31 p.m., according to the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS).

Per the South Korean military, he was recovered unarmed and bleeding some 25 minutes after gunshots were heard.

The fall is believed to be a result of tighter government surveillance and reinforced border security by both North Korea and China. The demilitarized zone between North and South Korea is guarded on both sides by hundreds of thousands of troops, razor-wire fences and tank traps.

He said: "My preferred outcome is to reunite the two Koreas".

The Civilian Control Line, south of the DMZ, was drawn in 1954 to protect military operations in the DMZ. "They were also informed that movement of the so-called 'floating' (itinerant) population would be severely restricted", a source in Ryanggang Province informed Daily NK on November 7.

"A" was detained after a member of the public alerted South Korea's military to his presence in the area.

Seoul says more than 30,000 North Koreans have defected to the South since the end of the Korean War in 1953.

In all of this, we have not thought of the Chinese and Russian actions, as they will not let us destroy North Korea.

A deadly firing incident occurred at Panmunjom on Nov. 23, 1984, when a 22-year-old Soviet defector, Vasily Yakovlevich Matuzok, bolted across the DMZ from the North to the South seeking asylum.

President Moon Jae-in and his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, formally announced that bilateral ties are back to normal in a summit meeting held on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Economic Leaders meeting in Vietnam.

Tension on the Korean peninsula rose last month as North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump exchanged war-like threats and insults over the North's nuclear and missile development program. From January to August 2017, 780 North Koreans escaped to South Korea, according to officials in Seoul. The incident left three North Korean soldiers and one South Korean soldier dead.
