North Korea Soldier Defects Through Heavily Mined DMZ Border to South

A North Korean soldier defected on Tuesday across the heavily mined Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) border to South Korea, the South's military said, amid high tension over the North's defiant pursuit of nuclear weapons.

The South Korean military is questioning the soldier, the South's Office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement.

This morning, South Korea announced they believe a drone sent from North Korea had been spying on a US missile defence system before it crash-landed on a hillside.

The remains of the small drone, which was equipped with a camera, were retrieved by the South's military last week from where it crashed close to the heavily-fortified inter-Korean border.
