Pyongyang says SKorean defects to NKorea

North Korea's official news agency says that a South Korea citizen has defected to the communist country.
The Korean Central News Agency says that the 30-year-old man crossed the heavily armed border into the North on Monday.
KCNA said the defector is "under warm protection" of the North.
Thousands of North Koreans have defected to the South in recent years, but it is very rare for South Koreans to defect to the impoverished North.
Government offices in Seoul could not immediately confirm the reported defection.
