North Korean Soldier Defects to the South

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(LONDON) -- South Korea's Defense Chief has apologized publicly after his military failed to spot a North Korean soldier defecting to the South across their heavily guarded border.

No one detected the soldier until he knocked on the door of front-line South Korean barracks on Oct. 2 to say he was defecting. The incident has raised serious questions about South Korea's military surveillance capabilities.
