US calls for explanation from North Korea over killing of South Korean

State Department echoes South Korean calls for DPRK explanation

The United States Department of State said Thursday it wants an explanation from North Korea about the killing of a South Korean citizen who had drifted into DPRK waters.

The U.S. condemned the incident after President Moon Jae-in had earlier described the shooting and burning of the ROK citizen as "shocking" and regretable.
