North, South Korea reach agreement to ease tensions
By James Pearson and Ju-min Park SEOUL (Reuters) - North and South Korea reached agreement early on Tuesday to end a standoff involving an exchange of artillery fire that had pushed the divided peninsula into a state of heightened military tension. Under the accord reached in the very early hours of Tuesday after more than two days of talks, North Korea expressed regret over the recent wounding of South Korean soldiers in landmine blasts and Seoul agreed to halt anti-Pyongyang propaganda broadcasts, both sides said. North Korea also agreed to end the "semi" state of war it had declared.
