North Korea on Tuesday demolished 10 guard posts (GPs) in the demilitarized zone (DMZ) as part of preliminary steps towards implementing September's inter-Korean military agreement, the South Korean Ministry of National Defense (MND) announced.

Seoul and Pyongyang agreed to completely remove all GPs from the DMZ earlier in the year, in a broad military agreement signed as an annex to the Pyongyang Joint Declaration.
