South Korea said North Korea “will pay a severe price” for allegedly planting land mines that maimed two of its soldiers.
A set of wooden-box mines exploded on Aug. 4 south of the demarcation line in the western demilitarized zone, wounding two South Korean soldiers on a routine patrol, Major General Goo Hong Mo of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said Monday in a briefing.
One soldier had a foot amputated and the second had to have parts of both legs removed. Goo accused North Korea of planting the mines.
“North Korea will pay a severe price for its provocation,” Goo said. South Korea’s retaliatory measures will remain “secret” until they are carried out, he said.
