South Korean troops killed another North Korean Monday in their hunt for the communist intruders who came ashore after their submarine ran aground two weeks ago.
Twenty-two North Korean agents have died since the submarine ran aground - South Korean officials say 11 of them may have been shot by their comrades - and South Korean officials believe more are still at large. One was captured.
Deputy Prime Minister Kwon O-kie told Parliament on Monday that North Korea would “pay the price” for its incursion.
Four South Korean soldiers have been killed in the 12-day hunt for the intruders. Officials fear that some of the agents have slipped through their cordon of 60,000 soldiers.
