N. Korean soldiers saved in South waters: report

SEOUL (Reuters) - Two North Korean soldiers have been rescued by a South Korean patrol after drifting into the South's waters in a small boat, a local news agency reported on Sunday.

The soldiers were found off Sokcho, a South Korean city on the northeastern coast, late on Saturday and taken to a hospital, Yonhap News said, citing a government source.

Seoul's unification ministry could not confirm the report. Yonhap said authorities were planning to question the soldiers as soon as they recovered.

The two Koreas remain technically at war after their 1950-53 conflict ended without a peace treaty.
