South Korea jails fake North Korean defector

(BBC) A South Korean court has jailed a North Korean spy reportedly ordered to attack the eldest son of late leader Kim Jong-il, officials say.

The unidentified man, charged with falsely defecting so as to gather information, was jailed for four years.

He had spent a decade in China tracking down North Korean defectors before coming to the South, the court said.
