      North, South Korea in conflict again

      This week the tensions in the relationship between North and South Korea escalated after Pyongyang blew up its joint liaison office with the South, located in the border town of Kaesong. The building of the office was South Korea's first permanent official representation in the North since 1953. This demolition marked Pyongyang's first direct actions against its southern neighbour after numerous threats which were made in the last few weeks.
