S. Korean tourists injured in North
A bridge has collapsed at a scenic mountain resort in N. Korea, injuring 20 S. Korean tourists, the South Korean tour operator said.

Lee Jae-hee a spokesman for Hyundai Asan Corp., the tour operator said that the accident occurred near the Guryong (Nine Dragons) Falls in Mount Geumgang on the east coast, when an iron wire supporting the 20-meter-long bridge ruptured at the scenic Diamond Mountain resort, with 20 South Koreans falling seven meters to the ground below.

Among the 20, six seriously injured were being transferred to South Korea for treatment, while the others who suffered mild injuries were being treated in North Korea, Lee said. He also added that none of the injuries were life-threatening.

Some 300,000 South Koreans travel to the North Korean mountain resort annually. This is the first major accident to occur at the resort area since the South Korean company launched the tour program in late 1998.
