The Hankyoreh Sinmun investigated war crimes in Vietnam and revealed other atrocities.[6]

Colonel Kim Ki-tae, former commander of the Seventh Company, 2nd Marine Brigade of the ROK Marines,[7] confessed to Hankyoreh that on 9 October 1966 South Korean troops set fire to the Binh Tai villagers’ homes and shot the villagers who fled the burning buildings,[1]
