The possibility of a terrorist attack or other provocations by North Korea is increasing as Kim Jong Un’s regime struggles to stem defections of key government officials, South Korean President Park Geun Hye said at a national security meeting Monday.
The defections signal a “serious fracture” within the North Korea’s regime, escalating the prospects of provocation as Kim tries to maintain control, Park said. Her comments come as South Korea and the U.S. began their annual military drills.
