South Korea's Moon apologises after North shoots its official

Sep 28, 2020 16:41 IST

South Korean President Moon Jae-in apologised for the first time on Monday for the death of a man who was shot by North Korean troops, saying his government failed in its responsibility to safeguard a citizen. The death of the South Korean official who was found adrift in North Korean waters sparked triggered outrage and criticism. Seoul reportedly wasted hours to rescue the official. The incident has drawn a rare apology from Kim Jong Un but not before the North blamed the official for inviting his death by attempting to flee.
