    Background: SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA

    A North Korean fighter pilot who defected to South Korea in February received a huge welcome in Seoul on April 14. Lee Ung Pyong, who flew his Chinese-built Mig 19 across the truce line separating the two Korean on February 25, was guest of honor at ceremony attended -- despite heavy rains -- by more than a million people. The 29-year-old pilot occasionally broke down in tears when speaking of his family in the North. His defection came at a time when tension between the two Korean during military exercise held jointly by South Korea and the United States one billion won (1.3 million U.S. dollars) by the South Korean authorities.
