N Korea threatens to ‘mercilessly’ punish S Korea – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

North Korea has threatened to “mercilessly” punish South Korea over its recent joint military exercises with the United States. The US and South Korea say last week’s exercises were intended to warn the North against further attacks. In a statement published in the country’s official newspaper, Pyongyang accuses the South of pushing the peninsula to the brink of war. Cross-border tensions have been high since international investigators accused the North of sinking a South Korean warship in March.
