PAJU, South Korea — North Korea on Thursday vowed to immediately deport all South Korean nationals and freeze all South Korean assets at a jointly run factory park in the North, a swift, aggressive response to the South Korean decision to suspend operations at the former symbol of inter-Korean cooperation.

Pyongyang also said it was pulling all its workers from the Kaesong complex just across the tense border in the city of Kaesong, shutting down two crucial cross-border communication hotlines and putting the factory under its military control.
