N. Korea positions additional special forces near border

North Korea recently deployed about 50,000 special forces along its border with South Korea, Yonhap News reported on Wednesday, citing an unidentified source.

The frontline deployment is the latest of a series of reinforcements by the reclusive regime in recent.

The move comes at a time when Seoul suspects a North Korean submarine is possibly behind the March 26 sinking of a South Korean warship.

Seoul beefed up its monitoring of North Korean forces amid heightened tensions on the Korean Peninsula, though Pyongyang publicly denied its involvement in the naval disaster.
