South threatens more penalties in joint industrial zone

SEOUL -- South Korea seeks to turn up the pressure on North Korea with more sanctions, including a scaled-back presence at a jointly run industrial park, in addition to the potential deployment of a land-based missile defense system.

     Unification Minister Hong Yong-pyo said Monday that he plans to take every possible step, including in the Kaesong Industrial Complex. Hong also told lawmakers in parliament that he is looking at necessary steps to chill the North to its bones.
