Demilitarized Zone, North Korea

The Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), the 4km wide buffer zone separating North and South Korea is rather ironically, anything but demilitarized. Both countries are still technically at war, the ceasefire and armistice that ended the fighting were never followed with a formal peace treaty.
South Korean protesters have clashed with police during a rally in Seoul to show their anger at their country’s response to its confrontation with the North. Demonstrators called on the South Korean government to take a harder line against North Korea following Tuesday’s attack on Yeonpyeong Island. Meanwhile, at another protest against the North held in Seoul at the same time, more than a thousand retired-marines also called on for a tougher stance against the North. Tension between the Koreas is running high as the US and the South prepare for large-scale military drills, set to begin on Sunday. RT on Facebook: www.facebook.com RT on Twitter: twitter.com
