Korean Infiltration Robert Siegel speaks with New York Times Tokyo Bureau Chief Nicholas Kristoff, who is in Seoul, South Korea covering the discovery of an infiltration by North Korean agents into the South. They were discovered when the submarine from which they disembarked ran aground on the South Korean coast. The boat's crew fled to shore but were found dead, apparently killed by the North Korean commandoes who'd landed earlier. The incident, though not unprecedented, worries South Koreans about North Korean intentions.
