SEOUL: A North Korean soldier who suffered critical gunshot wounds during a defection dash across the border to South Korea has been transferred to a military hospital, a South Korean intelligence official said on Saturday.
The North Korean soldier, 24-year-old Oh Chong Song, was transferred to the military hospital on Friday from a trauma center at Ajou University Hospital south of Seoul, where his treatment for gunshot wounds and pre-existing conditions included two major operations.
"Oh has been transferred to South Korea's military hospital and South Korea's intelligence services will soon schedule the security questioning process depending on Oh's condition," the intelligence official said.

Oh was shot and badly wounded by his fellow North Korean soldiers while fleeing across the border into the South in November.
