      South Korea has developed its own bombs guided by global positioning devices so they can hit hidden targets as far as 100 km away.

      The GPS-guided bombs are designed to take out North Korean artillery positions concealed behind mountains.

      Each costs W100 million (US$1=W1,056), which makes them significantly cheaper than guided missiles, the Defense Ministry said Monday.
