Tensions are high along the DMZ after a North Korean soldier killed two of his officers and then defected. 

While I'm always happy to see North Koreans make it across the border, I do have mixed feelings about them killing people in order to get there. Perhaps his DPRK superiors were people who deserve that kind of treatment, but how would we really know?

Here's an excerpt from CBS News:
A North Korean soldier killed two of his officers Saturday and defected to South Korea across the countries' heavily armed border in a rare crossing that prompted South Korean troops to immediately beef up their border patrol, officials said.

The soldier shot his platoon and company commanders before crossing the western side of the Demilitarized Zone at around noon, a Defense Ministry official said, citing the soldier's statement after he was taken into custody by South Korean border guards.
