Korean marines killed in shooting rampage
Tuesday 05 July 2011
A corporal in South Korea's marine corps went on a shooting rampage yesterday, killing four comrades and wounding another on a Yellow Sea island base near the country's tense border with North Korea.
The 19-year-old corporal, named only as Kim, was also injured. He was taken into custody on Ganghwa Island, about 40 miles west of Seoul. His motive is not known.
One of the slain marines was an officer, while the others were rank-and-file marines, defence officials said. One died on the way to hospital.
