De­fec­tor flees North

The Sunday Post (Dundee) - - NEWS -

A North Korean sol­dier fled across a heav­ily-for­ti­fied bor­der to de­fect to South Ko­rea yes­ter­day.

South Korean sol­diers es­corted the de­fec­tor to safety af­ter find­ing him mov­ing south of the eastern side of the mil­i­tary de­mar­ca­tion line that bi­sects the Koreas.

Au­thor­i­ties plan to ques­tion him over the de­tails of his es­cape.

It comes as North and South Ko­rea have pushed to im­ple­ment a wide-rang­ing agree­ment to re­duce ten­sions across their bor­der.
