Maybe it was just a little over zealousness or pre-summit anticipation on the part of some trigger-happy North Korean soldiers who fired on a South Korean outpost in the DMZ yesterday.

“North Korean soldiers fired guns at a South Korean guard post in the Demilitarized Zone separating the two Koreas in Inje, Gangwon Province on Monday afternoon. South Korean soldiers immediately fired 10 rounds of warning shots at the North. The office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said dust and smoke rose 100 m in the air after North Korean soldiers fired unidentified guns from the northern part of the DMZ at 1:30 p.m. Monday. The JCS said the North Koreans made no further unusual movements.”

It’s been awhile since there’s been any gun play in the DMZ; guess the guys up there were getting a little bored just walking the fence and needed to liven things up a bit.
