Inter-Korean crisis

Inter-Korean crisis

“Relations between the two Koreas remain fraught following an exchange of artillery fire in November 2010 across the disputed western maritime border that left four South Koreans dead. It was one of the most serious incidents between the two nations since the Korean War ended and came just months after the sinking of a South Korean warship, the Cheonan.
Meanwhile, North Korea has begun transferring power from ailing leader Kim Jong-il to his son, Kim Jong-un – a process that some analysts believe is behind North Korea’s recent actions. The BBC looks at the background to the current situation.”
