North and South Korean troops on Monday began removing landmines from their heavily fortified border following agreements the two nations reached last month, according to South Korean officials. The South Korean defense ministry released a statement saying the countries would remove the landmines from the Demilitiarized Zone within the next 20 days. South Korea deployed army engineers to the border village of Panmunjom and Arrow Head Hill, where the two nations plan to launch their first joint searches for soldiers killed in the Korean War.
