SEOUL, South Korea (AP) -- A North Korean soldier fatally shot a South Korean tourist Friday at a mountain resort in the communist North, prompting the South to suspend the high-profile tour program just as South Korean's new president sought to rekindle strained ties between the divided countries.

The news of the unprecedented shooting of a 53-year-old woman at Diamond Mountain resort emerged just hours after new President Lee Myung-bak delivered a nationwide address calling for restored contacts between the two Koreas, which have been on hold since he took office in February.

Well, I guess that they're going to back to a non-reunification stance again.

If you read the full article, you'll see that she was in a restricted area and was shot by a sentry.

Could it be she was really a syp for the South??
