Landmines cause multiple casualties during North Korean incursion into demilitarised zone

Landmine explosions have caused multiple North Korean causalities after troops were reported to have crossed into the demilitarised zone on the border with South Korea.
The Yonhap news agency reported that South Korea’s military had fired warning shots at the North Korean’s during the incursion.

It comes as Russia’s President Vladimir Putin begins a visit to North Korea, and marks the latest incident on the border between the North and South.
Last week, South Korea’s military fired warning shots after about 20 North Korean soldiers briefly crossed the border.
That followed a recent rise in tension over North Korea’s launch of balloons carrying trash into the South, as well as South Korea restarting “unbearable” propaganda broadcasts for the first time since 2018.
