N.K. shoots S. Korean official to death

Yoh Sang-key, the spokesman of the unification ministry, gives a briefing on North Korea's shooting of a South Korean official at the ministry in Seoul on Sept. 24, 2020. The official belonging to the West Sea Fishery Management Service (WSFMS), an organ of the fisheries ministry, went missing from a WSFMS fishery guidance boat on Sept. 21 while on duty in waters off the western border island of Yeonpyeong. Earlier in the day, the South Korean defense ministry said North Korea had shot the man and burned his body after finding him in its waters, in an apparent antivirus measure. The official is presumed to have jumped into the sea in a suspected attempt to defect to the North and had drifted into North Korean waters. He reportedly had financial problems.
