SEOUL, Nov. 30 (Yonhap) -- An anti-North Korea activist in Seoul said Tuesday that North Korea suffered just one death from South Korea's return fire during cross-border gunfire exchanges in the Yellow Sea on Nov. 23.
Choi Sung-yong, the head of a group of relatives of South Koreans kidnapped by North Korea, told reporters that he has obtained intelligence that one North Korean officer was killed and two soldiers were wounded by South Korean artillery fired from Yeonpyeong Island.

I am wondering if this is an effort to descalate tensions for the South. With the South and the North pulling their sharks and jets routine, they were looking for ways to descalate the tension, more so for the South whose people are wanting kims head on a platter.
Think it might be possible this is just a head fake? Let the people in the South think it was not a one sided loss that day. It might be enough to calm down some of the calls for retaliation.
Just a thought.
