North Korea has warned foreigners in South Korea to take evacuation measures in case of war in the latest escalation of warnings from Pyongyang. A spokesperson for the "Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee" told state news agency KCNA:
We do not wish harm on foreigners in South Korea should there be a war
Through her tears, a North Korean woman told me how she had to escape: risk death while running across the border or die of starvation.
Memories of the Korean war are never far away in South Korea, where residents have grown used to living with the constant threat of war.
North Korea said it will withdraw workers from the Kaesong factory park run jointly with South Korea and suspend all operations there.
