Shots in the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea!
Several bullets from North Korea hit a South Korean guard in the demilitarized zone, after which South Korea shot back. The first gunshots had hit the guard in the border town of Cheorwon in the morning. There are said to have been no victims or injuries.
There was a shootout just one day after North Korea dictator Kim Jong-un (36) made his first public appearance in 20 days. There had previously been rumors of his death worldwide.
The Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) has separated South and North Korea four kilometers wide and about 250 kilometers long since its brother war (1950-53). Peace was never reached. According to international law, the two states on the Korean peninsula are still at war.
