Seoul, Nov 25: Following serious criticism for the military's response to North Korea's attack, South Korean Defence Minister has resigned on Thursday, Nov 25.

Taking the responsibility for the attack incident, Defence Minister Kim Tae-Young handed over his resignation letter to President Lee Myung-Bak. Later President accepted his resignation.

Heavy criticism raised against Kim Tae-Young from different parts of the country for the 'soft response' for North Korea's attack on a border island.

Earlier on Tuesday, Nov 23 North Korea shelled a border island in South Korean, killing four people and setting homes ablaze.

Following the attack, Korean Peninsula once again put high alert after the sinking of a South Korean warship earlier in 2010.
