One of the two North Korean defectors that crossed into South Korea's waters near its northwestern coast on Saturday... is a civilian and not a soldier as initially thought.
The authorities reported that one of the defected had identified himself as a North Korean soldier when he was retrieved by South Korean military patrolling the Northern Limit Line, a de facto maritime border between South and North Korea in the West Sea.
But upon further investigation, authorities say they've confirmed that both of the defectors are in fact North Korean civilians.
They are planning to investigate more about the defectors' identities and their motive for making such false statements.
