South Korean Soldiers Fatally Shoot Man Crossing Border

A man trying to cross the heavily armed North-South Korea border was shot and killed by soldiers, said the Defense Ministry on Monday. Reportedly dressed in civilian clothing and carrying cookies, he ignored the guards’ warnings to turn back and jumped into the Imjin River, which travels through the border.
