World War 3: South Korean official shot and killed by North Korean soldiers
Tensions between North and South Korea remain in the midst of a global pandemic, with concerns of an all-out conflict or world war 3 ensuing between the two. Fears have been stoked as it was revealed that a South Korean man was shot and killed by North Korean soldiers.
A South Korean man was shot and killed by North Korean soldiers Tuesday. The victim was revealed to be an official from the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries and was reportedly attempting to cross the border when the North Korean troops shot him and poured oil on his body before setting him on fire. It was after they questioned the said official that they killed him, according to an official from the Joint Chiefs of Staff. It is also believed that the North Korean troops killed the man in compliance with the communist nation’s COVID-19 restrictions. The body was reportedly found near the inter-Korean maritime border.
South Korea President Moon Jae In blasted the North for the attack today, saying that the act of brutality will not be tolerated. A statement from the government also said that Pyongyang must punish the troops responsible for the killing of the official.
“North Korea found the man in its waters and committed an act of brutality by shooting at him and burning his body, according to our military’s analysis of diverse intelligence. Our military strongly condemns such a brutal act and strongly urges the North to provide an explanation and punish those responsible. We also sternly warn North Korea that all responsibilities for this incident lie with it,” said the statement.
In other related news, tensions between India and Pakistan also remain despite the current conflict with China, also raising concerns of a possible world war 3. Despite India’s attempts in being able to match up with China in terms of military power, experts say that Pakistan may pose more of a threat to India than China.
As to why Pakistan would be more of a threat to India, an analyst explained that apart from Pakistan being one of nine countries to have an arsenal of nuclear weapons, there is also a crisis instability now with India. This is especially as India is “on a quest for deterrence stability with China,” or an ability to come up with a secure second-strike option.
