North Korea warned Monday of an “unpredictable” retaliatory strike against South Korea following a series of minor border skirmishes that have raised military tensions ahead of planned high-level talks.

North and South Korean troops briefly exchanged fire Sunday in the latest in a series of minor border skirmishes that have raised military tensions on the divided peninsula.

South Korean police said Sunday no safety personnel were deployed at an outdoor pop concert where a ventilation grate collapsed, killing 16 people and injuring nine others.

A South Korean official handling safety measures at a concert where 16 people died apparently committed suicide, hours after tragedy struck when a ventilation grate collapsed, authorities said Saturday.

Sixteen people were killed and nine others seriously injured when a ventilation grate gave way while they were watching an outdoor pop concert in Seongnam south of Seoul on Friday, rescuers said.

North Korea's state media on Friday reported another public appearance by leader Kim Jong Un, his second in four days after an extended absence that has seen him re-emerge with a walking stick.

The first military talks between North and South Korea in more than three years ended with no agreement Wednesday, with the rivals failing to narrow their differences on how to ease animosity following two shooting incidents last week, South Korean officials said.

The extended absence of Kim Jong Un from North Korean state television stoked fears on Sunday that his health was rapidly deteriorating and endangering the communist state's political stability.

The top management of Hyundai Heavy Industries, South Korea's top shipbuilder, on Sunday asked all of its executives except for the chairmen and CEO to file for resignation.

North Korea's state media said Saturday high-level talks with Seoul were now all but scrapped over the launch of anti-Pyongyang propaganda leaflets from the South, which triggered an exchange of fire across the tense border.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un apparently missed a key political event Friday, extending a month-long absence that has fuelled rampant speculation about his physical and political health, although South Korea believes he remains in full control.
