  • Description

    A NORTH KOREAN ARMY OFFICER, CAPTURED BY SOUTH KOREAN TROOPS IN A BORDER CLASH LAST YEAR, HAS BEEN RETURNED TO NORTH KOREA. HE WAS HANDED OVER TO NORTH KOREAN OFFICIALS AT A MEETING OF THE JOINT MILITARY ARMISTICE COMMISSION IN PANMUNJOM, SOUTH KOREA, YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY).

    THE OFFICER WAS TAKEN PRISONER IN AN ARMED CLASH BETWEEN NORTH KOREAN AND SOUTH KOREAN TROOPS AT THE DEMILITARIZED ZONE NEAR THE KOREAN TRUCE LINE LAST SEPTEMBER.

    DURING THE INCIDENT, THREE NORTH KOREANS WERE KILLED AND TWO WOUNDED. THE UNITED NATIONS COMMAND IN KOREA SAY THE NORTH KOREANS CROSSED THE DEMARCATION ZONE AND OPENED FIRE ON SOUTH KOREAN TROOPS REPAIRING A ROAD.

    NORTH KOREAN MEMBERS OF THE ARMISTICE COMMISSION CLAIM THAT THEIR TROOPS DID NOT CROSS THE ZONE AND THAT THE SOUTH KOREANS OPENED FIRE FIRST.
