A soldier in South Korea’s reserves went on a shooting spree Wednesday, killing a fellow soldier and injuring three comrades before shooting himself dead, a military official said.

The incident will spur questions over the country’s rules on compulsory military service at a time when its military faces criticism of lax discipline in some units, leading to attacks on soldiers by colleagues suffering from psychological problems.
