MYANMAR-SKOREA-NKOREA-ATTACKS-HISTORY

This photo received from South Korea's Chosun Ilbo (newspaper) on October 11, 2012 and taken on October 9, 1983 shows a previously never-seen-before photo of the bombing attack by North Korea on then-South Korean President Chun Doo-Hwan's entourage in Rangoon, Burma, now know as Yangon, Myanmar, released by a former Seoul government photographer to the newspaper. At the request of the photographer, the photo was sensored (pixelated) because of sensitivity to the relatives of the dead victims. Chun's life was spared but the blast left 21 people dead and 46 others injured. In their investigation into the bombing, Myanmar police identified three North Korean agents who had come aboard a ship to Yangon and received explosives in the North Korean embassy.
