November 13: A North Korean soldier defected to South Korea through the Joint Security Area in the demilitarised zone on Monday.

The soldier is reported to have left his North Korean guard post in front of Panmungak, on the border inside the demilitarized zone, and proceeded to move towards Freedom House on the South Korean side.
