Six S Koreans missing in river near border

SIX South Koreans were missing near the border with the North, after a sudden rise in a river possibly due to water released from a dam in the North, a fire and rescue official said today.

"North Korea likely released water from its dam in the Imjin River," said an official at a fire station in Yuncheon, a town in northern Gyeonggi province just south of the border.

"Six people are missing and the search and rescue operation is under way," he said, adding another 10 were rescued.
