Today, a video showing a North Korean soldier fleeing across the border to South Korea while being shot by his former comrades, was released by the United Nations Command Wednesday. North Korea, a country deeply marked by the Kim Jong-un’s dictatorship, sees more and more of its citizens trying to cross the frontier.
The security footage released on November 13, with a wide shot of a military vehicle speeding down a street on the North Korean side of the demilitarized zone. Second step, the soldier forces the guard post ahead the bridge. Then, we can see the defecting soldier getting out from the driver’s side of the vehicle and starting to run. Four North Korean soldiers appear in frame near the vehicle.
