North Koreans Attack American Patrol At DMZ PANMUNJOM, Korea (UPI) —Communist North Korean infiltrators attacked a patrol of American infantrymen on the edge of the Demilitarized Zone separating North and South Korea today. Each side suffered one man killed. Several North Koreans opened fire on a U.S. 2nd Infantry Division patrol while the Korean Armistice Commission was meeting in the truce village of Panmunjom, a U.S. military spokesman said. One member of the patrol was killed and four others wounded, the spokesman said. The North Koreans fled back across the truce line, leaving one body behind, the spokesman said. South Korean troops killed eight North Korean infiltrators in three gun battles Sunday along the truce line. One South Korean was killed.
