South Korean police Friday charged the man behind a shocking knife attack on the U.S. ambassador with attempted murder, while investigating his possible links with North Korea.Any red flags such activities may have raised were only underlined by North Korea's reaction to the attack, which the official KCNA news agency described as "just punishment" and a valid "expression of resistance" to ongoing U.S.-South Korea joint military exercises.Enacted in 1948, to protect the fledgling South Korean state from infiltration by the communist North, the law prohibits the spoken or written promotion of North Korean ideology, deeming any such activity to be "anti-state" and subject to up to seven years imprisonment.
