A day after trading gunfire, troops on Monday tightened a cordon around a runaway South Korean soldier who killed five comrades at an outpost near the border with North Korea. Officials said the military was using loudspeakers overnight to try to persuade the sergeant, identified only by his surname Yim, to surrender. Yim’s parents were also brought to the forest about 10 kilometers (6 miles) from the border outpost to talk to him, according to a Defense Ministry official who asked not to be named, citing department rules.
