SEOUL, South Korea — South Korean media say a South Korean soldier is at large after killing five comrades and wounding another five at the border with North Korea.

South Korean military officials didn't immediately return calls seeking more details. South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported Saturday night that a South Korean army private fled after opening fire on his comrades earlier in the evening at an outpost in Gangwon province, east of Seoul.

Thousands of soldiers from the rival Koreas square off along the world's most heavily armed border.

There is no indication that the North Korea was involved. But tensions have been high recently, with North Korea staging a series of missile and artillery drills and threatening South Korea's leader.
