North Korea Blames South in Shooting

Date: July 12, 2008
Author: Choe Sang-hun
QUOTE: North Korea blamed South Korea on Saturday for the death of a South Korean tourist, who was shot by a North Korean soldier before dawn on Friday morning after wandering into a restricted military area. North Korea also refused to let South Korean officials enter its territory to investigate the shooting. The incident, in which a 53-year-old woman was killed after apparently wandering into a restricted military zone near the North’s Kumgang resort, added chill to already-frosty relations between the two Koreas.
