While officially under a cease-fire, relations have remained tense between the two Koreas and violence has occasionally flared up. In 1983, four South Korean cabinet members were killed in a bombing while they visited Myanmar. In 1987, 155 people died when Korean Air Flight 858 was bombed. Investigations found North Korea was behind both bombings, though the North Korean government denies this.
