May 26 (Bloomberg) — North Korea said it will sever all ties with South Korea and expel the South’s workers from a joint industrial zone as “punishment” for accusing it of sinking a warship and killing 46 South Korean sailors.

“There is no need to show any mercy or patience for such confrontation maniacs,” the official Korean Central News Agency reported late yesterday, citing the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea. North Korea will “abrogate the agreement on non-aggression” and handle all issues with South Korea under wartime law, the group said.

North Korea’s statement added to perceptions of increased tension on the Korean peninsula following the March 26 sinking of the 1,200-ton Cheonan, which a multinational team concluded on May 20 was caused by a North Korean torpedo.
