Federal troops killed another North Korean infiltrator, bringing to 21 the number of Pyongyang agents who have been shot to death since they came ashore from a submarine last week, the Defense Ministry said. "He was killed during a gunfight with South Korean troops," a Defense Ministry spokesman said. Later, a ministry official said the dead infiltrator was wearing a South Korean military uniform. The infiltrator was one of five still thought to be on the run after the submarine foundered on an east coast reef Aug. 18.
