PYONGYANG -- South Korea's military said it will strike back at North Korea and target its top leadership if it launches a threatened attack.
Yesterday North Korea announced the new threat in response to what it says are "hostile" drills between U.S. and South Korean forces.
In a rare appearance on state television, one of North Korea's top generals said the country had torn up its armistice deal with Washington and threatened military action against the U.S. and South Korea if the drills went ahead.
The U.S. and South Korea regularly hold military exercises together and the latest exercises between the two countries began last Friday.
