SEOUL—North Korean soldiers crossed into South Korea early Thursday in pursuit of a comrade who had defected across the heavily guarded demilitarized zone about an hour earlier and were forced to turn back when South Korean guards fired warning shots, defense officials in Seoul said.
The junior ranking defector was detected by South Korean surveillance as he dashed across a northwestern portion of the DMZ about 8 a.m., a Defense Ministry spokesman told a news briefing.
North Korean soldiers were spotted about an hour later, seemingly tracking the defector, and crossed briefly into the South. In response, South Korean guards fired 20 warning shots, prompting the North Koreans to halt before returning to the northern side of the border, the ministry said.
Gunfire could be heard in the North another hour later, about 10 a.m., the ministry said. But South Korean authorities said they weren’t aware of any targets in the South coming under fire.
