In Major Escalation, North Korea Blows Up South Korean Liaison Office
When Kim Jong Un’s sister, Kim Yo Jong – rumored to be even more brutal and ruthless a leader than her brother – started making threats against the South and the US, while declaring that President Trump would “never again” be allowed to use the country to score political points, we suspected something was afoot.
Less than two weeks after abruptly cutting off all communication with the South (including an emergency cross-border hotline), North Korea has taken the extreme and unprecedented step of blowing up a liaison office set up along the heavily militarized border between the two countries (which are still technically at war).
According to media reports and black and white surveillance footage shared by South Korea, a loud explosion was heard and smoke could be seen rising into the air as North Korea blew up the inter-Korean liaison office in Kaesong – the de facto embassy between the two restive neighbors – in a dramatic escalation of tensions with South Korea near the the demilitarized zone.
