South Korean Abducted!

Jeff has got the scoop on the story and a link to the video as well, which is worth a gander. Joongang has the story (in Korean), so too does Korea Times (in English)and any other Korean news site you fancy.

Meanwhile the parents are appealing for their son to be rescued (in Korean), and here as well. (in Korean)

As well, the National Security Council under the president has held an emergency meeting and set up a task force (in English).

I can't see that it is feasible for the government to rescue this poor guy, but it will be a real test for a government that has been vacillating about this issue and faced much opposition and still hasn't actually sent the troops.
