US, South Korea brace for North Korea deadline

Curated by

 

South Korea’s military on Thursday fired dozens of rounds across the border in response to what Seoul said were North Korean artillery strikes meant to back up a threat to attack the loudspeakers. It’s unclear whether North Korea means to attack immediately, but South Korea has vowed to continue to the broadcasts, which it recently started after an 11 year stoppage accusing Pyongyang of planting land mines that maimed two South Korean soldiers earlier this month. More than 240 South Koreans entered a jointly-run industrial complex in the North Korean border city of Kaesong.

 

 

  • Four U.S. F-16 fighter jets and four F-15k South Korean fighter jets simulated bombings, starting on the South Korean eastern coast and moving toward the U.S. base at Osan, near Seoul, officials said.
  • With U.S. and South Korean fighter jets taking to the skies in a show of force, the two Koreas prepared for a possible military clash Saturday as the North’s deadline loomed for Seoul to dismantle loudspeakers broadcasting anti-North Korean propaganda across their border.
  • The country was founded by Kim Jong Un’s grandfather, Kim Il Sung.
