North Korean Soldier Kills 53 Year old Woman

Quote:
Last week a new crisis hit the inter-Korean relations. In the Geumgang tourist zone, a South Korean female tourist was killed by a North Korean soldier. The circumstances of the incident are still murky: it seems that Park Wang-ja, a 53-year old housewife, inadvertently crossed into a badly marked (or, perhaps, unmarked) prohibited area and was shot by a sentry who perhaps did not even bother to fire a warning shot.

While the South demanded an apology, the North, whose leaders know how efficient bold shamelessness might be, reacted with its own demand of apology. Tours are halted, and the largest project of intra-Korean cooperation is now under threat of collapse.
Koreas See Worst Tension in a Decade

This is not the greatest news in the world, but one the most disturbing.

Is that woman even from Korea?

She should know better

Being Malaysian is about driving in a German car to an Indian restaurant for an Indonesian food, then travelling home, grabbing a Pakistani kebab on the way, to sit on Swedish furniture and watch American shows on a Japanese TV. Because we have no originality.

Re: North Korean Soldier Kills 53 Year old Woman

As unfortunate as this is, one must wonder what she was doing crossing the most heavily armed border in the world. I can not see how she could not see all the barbed wire, warning signs, and even watch towers with soldiers on both sides with guns on patrol for trespassers. I am sure any logical person would know that, in the middle of the DMZ is not a good place to be, especially with rising tensions between North & South Korea.
