 President Park calls for reform of military culture following bullying deaths
The need for culture reform within Korea's military has been underscored yet again.
Just this week, three soldiers have committed suicide.
Other than the recent suicide cases,
a soldier shot and killed his comrades at a general outpost near the inter-Korean border last month, and an Army private was beaten to death in April.
And in light of these events President Park Geun-hye called on key military commanders on Wednesday, to do everything within their powers to stamp out bullying culture within the service.
Defense Minister Han Min-koo has also introduced reform measures meant to bolster the protection of human rights and safety in the military.
