FILE - In this Dec. 28, 2011 file photo, a North, right, and a South Korean soldier look at each other's sides at the Panmunjom (DMZ) that separates the two Koreas since the Korean War, in Paju, South Korea. A North Korean soldier killed two of his superiors Saturday, Oct. 6, 2012, and defected to South Korea across the countries' heavily armed border in a rare crossing that prompted South Korean troops to immediately beef up their border patrol, officials said. The soldier shot his platoon and squad leaders before crossing the western side of the Demilitarized Zone at around noon, a Defense Ministry official said, citing the soldier's statement after he was taken into custody by South Korean border guards.
