"Some people in North Korea are making inquiries about how they could sell American soldiers' identification tags", Kim Dong-nam, head of the International Network for a Free North Korea, told the U.S, -based media outlet. The U.S. Olympic Sled Hockey team is competing in a world tournament in South Korea this week. Kim said it's important to understand the history of both countries. The team is expected to fly out of Seoul, South Korea on Friday.

Their outfits looked so similar to those of the South Korean special forces that it was hard to distinguish them.

Citing a source in a North Korean region bordering China, RFA said price negotiations are being made over the tags and even imitations are offered amid rumors of the United States paying for such objects.

North Korea's special forces, according to the white paper, expanded from 120,000 in 2006 to about 200,000 in 2010, accounting for 17% of Pyongyang's forces at that point.

Tunnels from North Korea into South Korea have been found before, though none have been uncovered since 1990.

Bloom and Walsh called into 21st Century Fox's corporate hotline last week to formally issue the complaint with the company. She said she is not bound by any such agreement, and the statute of limitations for suing has run out.


Recent tensions between Washington and Pyongyang have been focused on the latter's nuclear weapons program and missile testing. Vice President Mike Pence visited South Korea this week to ensure the country that it has the United States' support.

To Nallakarupan's original question as why Malaysia did not break off diplomatic relations with North Korea, Reezal Merican said the the government chose to continue diplomatic ties with Pyongyang in view of the longstanding relations which have lasted over four decades.

North Korea's deputy U.N. ambassador accused the United States on Monday of turning the Korean Peninsula into "the world's biggest hotspot" and creating "a unsafe situation in which a thermonuclear war may break out at any moment". Jong-nam's body was also repatriated to North Korea the same day, accompanied by three North Korean nationals who had been holed up at the North Korean embassy here.

However, on April 15, the carrier was pictured passing through Indonesia toward the Indian Ocean - about 3,500 miles from Korea.
