Death penalty sought for South Korea soldier over shooting spree............

SEOUL - South Korean military prosecutors sought the death penalty Friday for a young conscript over last year's deadly shooting spree that killed five at a guard post near the tense border with North Korea.
At a court martial in the eastern city of Wonju, the prosecution said the 22-year-old sergeant surnamed Lim deserves death because he showed no repentance for his "premeditated and cruel" crime targeting unarmed comrades, according to Yonhap news agency.
In June last year, Lim hurled a grenade and opened fire on members of his own unit, killing five and wounding seven.
He was captured alive after he shot himself in the chest in a failed suicide attempt following a 24-hour standoff with thousands of troops.
