North Korea soldiers shoot South Korean government minister and burn him before disposing of him in the sea
Soldiers from North Korea have shot and burnt the body of a South Korean government official.
The man, who was affiliated with the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries, disappeared from a patrol boat near the border and was found in North Korea’s waters a day later.
North Korean soldiers shot him, poured petrol on his body and set it alight, the Seoul ministry said, citing intelligence gathered by surveillance equipment and other assets. It was unclear what caused his death and whether he died after being shot.
It’s believed and reported that the official was shot after crossing borderlines where at present the North Koreans have a shoot on site policy as they claim they have no Coronavirus infections.
Suh Choo-suk, deputy director of the national security office for South Korea, said in a statement today that North Korea should reveal the events that led to the “inhumane act” and reiterated calls from the defence ministry to punish those responsible for it.
The defence ministry added in a statement: “We also sternly warn North Korea that all responsibilities for this incident lie with it.”
