PAST THREATS AND ACTIONS

Recent escalations between the north and south are just the latest in a historically tense relationship. Although an armistice was signed in 1963 to signal the end of fighting, the Korean War has technically never ended.

Some of the more significant events:

March 29, 2010: North Korea torpedoes a South Korean Navy ship, killing 46 sailors. The Cheonan warship sank after an explosion ripped through its hull. Pyongyang denied involvement in the sinking.

November 23, 2010: One South Korean marine is killed and 13 injured when North Korean artillery shell the border island of Yeonpyeon.

November 19, 1987: A Korean Air passenger jet explodes mid-air after a bomb was placed on board. All 115 people on board were killed. The bomb was later found to have been planted by two North Korean agents.

August 18, 1976: Two US military officers are hacked to death by North Korean soldiers with axes. The incident occurred over a disagreement over a tree that was being chopped down in the Joint Security Area on the border of North and South Korea.

April 15, 1969: A US Navy aircraft is shot down by North Korean aircraft over the Sea of Japan.
